Step children

I have done my best as a step-mum

to go gently on my way,

never stepped on the toes of real mum

or had  over  much to say.

As the months have turned into years,

the children have since grown,

they have shown me much love and kindness

sometimes  even more than my own.

They say blood is thicker than water,

and that you can’t get blood from a stone,

but love is tasted in sorrow

and love is what my step children have shown.
