Tight tummy and flawless skin,
No marks from life that lived within.
Nights out and beauty sleep,
No midnight cries for love so deep.
Luxury holidays and shopping sprees,
No priceless first discoveries.
Spotless house and clean car,
No imprints of a shining star.
Romantic plans and timely arrival,
No endless surprises Christmas could rival.
Fine dining and leisurely tea,
No feeding innocence and curiosity.
Hot baths and lazy days,
No witness to life’s youthful phase.
Peace, quiet and time alone,
No saviour from a life outgrown.
