That Heart Part

18 Jun

She sat alone in the car, mopping tears that sprang when she heard those lines.

“Every place I go, I think of you; Every song I sing, I sing for you.”

Then she busied herself tidying up her face. Wiped clean, sniffle-free, composed.

Wicked stepmothers can’t be seen missing little souls not born of them.

    We need a new word, where wicked isn’t the automatic adjective appended to it.
    How about othermother???
    Bonds of the heart remain bonds of the heart, distances notwithstanding.

    ‘Bonus Mum’ is a beautiful expression
    Negates all wicked conotation
    That kind, caring mother
    Sure will love-smother
    Any and every kid — step-, ex-womb or from adoption!

    dipali: Yeah! Everyone can do with one. 🙂 I, though, collect grandmothers.

    dipikasingh: 🙂

    Aunty G: I need to call you, blog-mamma. See, that’s one more type right there. 😉

    M4: Aww, here’s a hug.

    Cocktail Party: Umm, hence the sarcasm? 🙂

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
