How to be a Woman

She’s the breath within me
The heartbeat in my chest
Part of the same soul,
Co-dependent; symbiotic
An invisible pull,
Like gravity,
Keeping us in orbit
Her moon,
Creating my tide
Forever connected.

I gave birth to her,
But in truth,
It was her
That gave life to me.
With her tender compassion
She teaches me
How to be a mother.
With her power,
Her poise,
Her courage,
This girl shows me
How to be a woman.
