Tis but like yesterday
After nine months of waiting,
Making plans and dreaming up
Images of how beautiful you’d be,
Loving you from the very first day I knew
Of your presence,
Relishing every moment as you grew,
Enduring the nights when it was
Hard to find a comfortable position to fall
Asleep and the several bouts of
Pains and discomfort; finding an inner
Peace and joy in the life growing within.
Years have passed since that first cry,
But the feelings you evoked as you took
In your first breath
Remains as strong as it was
The moment you made eye contact.
Heaven’s blessing you are, little
Darling and watching you grow strong
And healthy has been a delight which for many
Years to come I hope to bask in its wonder.
This poem is for Tammy, the sweetest little girl on earth, and the apple of her momma’s eye (Yemie.)
Wishing you many happy returns dear.
Lots of love and kisses.
