Mothers

It’s a strange thing

To share your kids with others

But…that’s what divorce is

Two people now split

Learning to share their beloveds

It’s not an easy thing

Blended families are hard

I’ve had to share with two women

(But that’s another story)

And…it’s a strange thing

Also a great one, and I’ll tell you why

Sometimes we’re selfish

We think sharing love means diluting love

Of course it doesn’t

And isn’t it amazing

When so many people want the same thing?

To love

And be loved

By children?
