You caught me when I fell…

On this day, I recognise the absolute and unwavering love and support I have received from all the women in my life who have pulled me through.

This is a day for remembering all those women in the world who need our protection, advocacy and support. But also, for remembering that behind it all, there is a mother, sister, and friend who will hold you when you fall. It is to these women that I think of today. You caught me when I fell. Thank you.

You caught me when I fell,

with your words of support,

and whispers of shared tales which

connect, to the pain that I felt.

You caught me when I fell,

with your gentle pauses,

your knowing gaze and steady presence.

You gave me space to be,

as time came to pass.

You caught me as I fell,

you wrapped around me,

like a nest to contain my sorrow.

You taught me that life has more to give,

when we are stripped to the bone.

You caught me when I fell.
