I dreamt of the day you would arrive …
from the second my eyes were able to focus on you… I knew
with your daddy’s nose and my grandmother’s chin… I knew
from your puffy cheeks & perfect pink lips
gazing in wonder as the nurse created your first footprint
today would be the first day of our adventure together
you were created to be mine and I yours
I knew I was your mommy and you the love of my life.
