You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun, You're part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew, My mind was filled with thoughts of you.
I'd daydream of the things we'd share, Like late-night feedings and teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees, Like bedtime stories and ABC's.
I thought of things you'd want to know, Like how birds fly and flowers grow.
I thought of lessons I'd need to share, Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face, I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above, And promised you unending love.
Each night I lay you down to sleep, I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes, I memorize you eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door, Awed each day I love you more.
Through misty eyes, I dim the light, I whisper "I Love You" every night.
I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
As mother and child our journey's begun, My heart's yours forever little one.
I don't know if my kids will ever fully understand just how much I adore them. (and the hubby, but that's a post of it's own.)
I lack the vocabulary to tell them, that's why I love this poem. Every part of it, I feel so intensely.
I don't know - if my kids will remember that, truly, every night I lay them to sleep, I gently kiss their head and cheek.
I count their little fingers and toes, I memorize their eyes and nose.
I linger at their bedroom door, Awed each day I love them more.
Through misty eyes, I dim their light, I whisper that I love them every night.
What I do know - is that I am one blessed Mama!!!
