A Poem: Mom’s Tears.

mom criesA child was born, and mom cried tears.
The future lay ahead.
The possibilities are endless.
The journey will be as exciting as trying.

A child ‘stepped-up’ from pre-k, and mom cried tears
The first five years flew by
The journey is so exciting
Her child makes her life complete.

A child attends their first dance, and mom cried tears
The child is growing to be a young adult
The journey is so exciting
The whirlwind of activity is endless at times

The child makes the team in junior high school, and mom cried tears
No matter what they do, pride grows with each day
The journey is so exciting
Young and strong they continue to grow.

The child is diagnosed with diabetes, and mom cried tears
and she cried, and cried, and cried, and cried.

A mom decides that diabetes will just not do in their lives.
The future lay ahead.
The possibilities are endless.
The journey will be as exciting as trying.

The choice is yours.
The outlook at birth and diagnosis
Is far; but not as far apart as you think
It’s all in how you handle it.

The choice is yours.
I am a diabetes dad.
