There are some days I am in a poetry kind of mood and somedays I just don’t really have it in me. I wanted to share another one of my poems with you that I wrote about the feelings you have when you hold your newborn baby in your arms. I can’t remember what prompted me to write this one, but I guess having the Boy who is newly nine as of last Wednesday made me feel like sharing this. It’s another very short one and to the point. I promise!
Each birthday that my children have takes me back to those early days. I reminisce about what they looked like and smelled like. I have those certain special memories that I will always hold dear and close to my heart. Those memories are mine alone. No one can take those from me. That fact makes them all the more special.
We all love our children and of course if you have more than one, like me, you have probably heard them ask, “who’s your favorite” or they make statements like, “I know you like him/her best. Everyone knows that.” If they only knew how much they were truly loved, they would never question our love again. Each of my children is my favorite. They each are very different and also very similar in many ways. I love them each forever and always and I would do anything in the world to protect them.
