This an article by Robert Krulwich about how fetal cells transfer into his or her mother. Little bits of my babies are in my body. It's science!
I had a feeling this was true before I heard about the science. Moms know this truth even before science can discover it. When I look at my kids, I feel a part of them in me, still.
I love science.
This article reminds me of a poem that I used to think was the perfect way to describe the love I have for my husband. As I have loved him more and more, and loved people more and more, I have changed my mind about this poem. For me now, it is about my children.
[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
