I’m a mummy

No matter what they say

My heart Lurches

When I’m asked

And, I answer

Yes, I’m a mummy

But Alice didn’t stay

My sweet Alice

My princess, my best

I was still your mummy

When I laid you to rest

I know you’re with me

Feel you in the gentle breeze

I know you’re with me

When they ask me..

Are you really – a Mummy?
