My Miracles

A poem I wrote to honour my four beautiful children, the lights of my life. It explains how I felt about each one of them right from the very beginning. I feel very blessed to have been chosen as the mother to these amazing individuals...

Love from the Beginning

Exquisite moments in time,
Engraved upon my mind, my heart, my soul
Reverently remembered, each one, for always
Magical, surreal, powerful, each one
Celebrated with clouds of confetti,
Tossed whimsically toward the heavens,
While crystalline tears of pure happiness flow,
Announcing to the masses
That new life has begun
Deep within this woman's womb.
A precious gift bequeathed to me,
Not once, nor twice, but four incredible times
So blessed, so thankful
In awe I watch and feel and discover,
As the miracle of life unfolds,
Within this woman's womb.
Tenderly my hands fan out,
Upon my expanding body,
Confident in the knowledge,
That the tiny soul within this woman's womb
Is anchored safely, securely, sweetly
Gently floating, swaying,
Absorbing all that is needed
Mesmerized by new sensations,
Imagining the tiny toes and wee fingers,
Miniature pink fists,
Confirming the presence of a dream come true
Sweet child
Within this woman's womb.
How I wonder who you'll look like,
Brown eyes or green? Freckles or dimples, maybe both?
A thousand times I've pondered,
A million times I've smiled,
The anticipation of you, sweet baby,
Saturates me with a joy and completeness
I've never known
Oh beautiful wee child of mine
I can hardly wait to meet you.
