A Poem for my Children.


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.
