I've heard your heartbeat, in sync with mine.
I've felt you kick inside me numerous times.
I dreamt of your face; how beautiful it would be.
And I fell instantly in love, when they placed you on me.
You are my angel sent from heaven. My child. My world.
A new beginning of life, mine + yours, unfurled.
From tiny toes, to late night cries.
To runny noses and shoes that tie.
I've watched you grow. I watched you learn.
I've rocked you to sleep and I've looked at you stern.
I pray for you daily. I pray I'm raising you right.
Because sometimes being a Mother keeps me up at night.
I worry about your life. I worry about who you'll be.
I worry that somebody else could do this better than me.
But I know God sent you to be my child.
He knew that I needed an angel. So he sent you. And He smiled.
Because He knew I could be strong and do the best I can.
He knew I was up for the task that I did not plan.
I never imagined I could be who I am today.
I am your mother. You are my child. And no one can take that away.
