Poem #2 from Robin’s list of ideas!! Loving it and bawling my eyes out all at the same time. Read on and you’ll know why…
It all happened in just a moment
Life changed forever that day
God’s goodness was so clear to me
When the fairest angel came to stay.
Soon after a wondrous gift arrived
The little bundle with the smiling eyes;
How I lived to hear little giggles
And I ached when I heard their cries!
I watched as my little ones changed…
Oh, so quickly it seemed that they grew
Joy and wonder along with a heavy heart
As I saw just how swiftly time flew.
Pride swells in the heart of this mama
You are strong-willed and loving and kind
And the sound of you making each other laugh
Will forever remain in my mind.
Now you stand on the verge of adulthood
A new journey that you each must take
With every breath I’m praying God guides you
In every decision that you will make.
Though my eyes fill with tears, I am thankful,
In my heart I ask, “God, if you please,
May you fill us with love, bind us together,
And give us many more sweet memories.”
