The Label of Love

When a woman has a child
She is called a Mother
It is a label of love

But when a child dies
The woman is a Mother
Of a child who has died
There is no label

I don’t want the label
Of a Mother whose child has died

But if labels must be handed out…
I want the label of a mother

The other label, the one that doesn’t exist
is too hard, too sad and absolutely terrible

I don’t want the label
Of a Mother whose child has died

Just as well there is no label
