This poem was co-created by participants at the INviteME Online sessions:
You can lean on me
sit down and relax
Don´t feel too blue
Not that comfortable but
longing for the world outside
soft woollen green
connecting me with my grandparents
embracing and giving peace
welcome to my home
connected but still protected
Warmth and give me a hug
this is where you are meant to be
Im the mum my kids need
texture and home
Lean into me I got you
let´s trust each other
Let me hold you.
