I loved you from the very start,

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!!!
