A Mothers Heart
I loved you from the very start, you stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun, you're a part of me 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 un-ending 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 your 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 journeys just begun, my heart is yours **forever** my little one.
I thought I would share this poem today because I just happened to find it and thought it's just too sweet to not share it. I still have a bunch of pictures of my daughter when she was born that I need to scrapbook. This poem would look great on a scrapbook layout. Anyway, don't forget to stop back again for more quotes or poems next week. Hope you enjoy this poem! (Ps. I found this poem at scrapbook.com)
