Motherhood

I rediscovered this endearing poem that I wrote for my colleague back in 2009.  I hope you enjoy it.

Motherhood

I sat there for a while
thinking of your crooked
little smile,
dreaming of the day
you’d be in my arms,
sleeping throughout the night,
as the crickets sing
and the stars shine bright.

I’d hear  you breathe,
a comforting sound
as your little heart
lightly pounds.
Skin – silky smooth,
hair – wavy soft,
I’d whisper
in your ear,
“I love you.”
