Poetry - The One About The Girl

I was inspired this morning by a blogger over at Verily Victoria Vocalises.

I am joining in with:

Prose for Thought

* The One About The Girl *

I thought you'd have a Sister or perhaps a brother
At least for you to play with, one other
I thought you'd be a girl, but the scan said otherwise
When the Sonographer confirmed, I thought it must be lies

You already had a name, you were my little girl,
Instead in a heartbeat, emotions in a whirl.
For names we had to go back, to the drawing board
And then you became Aaron and my emotions soared.

You see I was a girl Mum, but then you were a boy!
Once I got it in my head, my heart so filled with joy.
I didn't think I'd want to dress a rascal with short hair.
But you know YOU are the best dressed; models beware.

You are the coolest little boy this Mum could ever need,
so is it wrong of me to want my girl, is it just greed?
You see I want you to have someone to hold,
When I get my grey hair and am so very old.

I want you to have a Sister, one that makes you laugh,
I want you to look out for her, on my behalf.
Because you'd make a fab big brother, like you do a son,
Because she would look up to you, like I do, your Mum.

Everyday you make me proud, you push the boundaries,
Now that you are 3 years old, you've even learned to tease.
A sense of humour you've got lots of it, a twinkle in your eye.
I hope our twinkle brings a girl, or perhaps I'll cry.

See Mummy's days of being fertile are probably on the wane,
My hopes of seeing my baby girl are going down the drain.
So let us make a wish today, that we can bring her here.
From that ocean in the sky, I'd like to see her near.

It took me 13 minutes to write the above but then 13 has always been a lucky number for me.  We got married on our 13th anniversary.   I had 13 red roses in my wedding bouquet, and 13 in numerology  is a feminine Goddess energy number which is why the number has always been made out to be unlucky - it is NOT! Grasp the power of feminine 13 today, don't delay :-)
Writing the above has made me cry!


  1. I am so interested in what you say about the number 13 being a feminine number. I am going to look this up! 13 minutes for a poem, that has to be a record!

  2. A very sweet and honest poem. Your boy sounds amazing and your love shines through. I truly hope you get your hearts desire x #prose4t

  3. Lovely...I feel you but I am all for boys! Can't believe that took u 13 minutes.

  4. This is lovely and you know, I felt EXACTLY the same when my boy was 3. Isobel finally arrived when he was 4. If its what you wish for I truly hope it comes your way xxx

  5. This is truly a wonderful ode to your story is reversed, I was sure I was having a boy and had a beautiful girl.

  6. A great poem and well done ...13 minutes!

  7. Oh flip my comment has been eaten! Well I said 'well done,what a lovely poem and I hope one day you get your baby girl' x #prose4thought

  8. Liska - you are a wonderful poet - this is one of the most beautiful things I've ever read! I hope you get her too - and don't forget I had the same feelings and visions for my second one to come and he eventually came along (within a crap marriage) at 45, so you've time, my lovely. Big hugs xxx

  9. Beautiful, and I hope you get what you want. I am definitely a boy mum x

  10. It's funny how you can feel so sure you are meant to be a certain type of mama. I was adamant I was going to be a boy mama, I always pictured a home full of boys, so when my daughter was born I genuinely didn't believe it. I found being a boy mama came really naturally, but a girl was much more of learning curve.
    I'm sure that things that are meant to be, happen! And I really hope you get to have a girl one day. X

  11. I was so chuffed to read that I inspired you to write a poem last week - and about such an important subject to you which is obviously close to your heart. You've written this so honestly - and fantastically well. Thank you so much for sharing with Prose for Thought x


Drop me a line, and I will visit you right back - as soon as I get chance. Thanks for your comment.
