He pulls me to him still

  his spirit like a magnet

Wrapping me in his arms

  Draping his love all around me

Those eyes telling a thousand stories

  those lips offering a million kisses

each one a blessing, a treasure

Holding me steady as we watch our baby grow

My belly swollen and wonderful

Knowing him is my biggest achievement

Loving him is my life

    • Thank you so much for commenting. 🙂 I remember writing another around that time, but made the fatal mistake of scribbling on a random piece of paper instead of in my little book, stuffed it in my handbag (must have been out when I wrote it) and you guessed it … somehow it must have fallen out. I was so gutted (still am) that my precious words (precious to me, you understand) might have fallen into the hands of some stranger … think I prefer to imagine they were washed away down a drain 😦 So personal and so lost!!

    • Hello, I have submitted a poem 🙂 I think I understand the rules properly (although have assumed my submission indicates agreement as I couldn’t see where to put that?) and will embark on the 18 over the next week. Thank you again for your encouragement x

  2. Love the name of your blog! Its name + the first entry I’ve read + the comment you made above = all knitted together well to reflect the lessons learned!

    Life does indeed shape and mold us … we should all look back with gratitude and joy for those experiences! Thank you for sharing ~becca

    • Thank you for your lovely, positive response! I’m pleased you like the blog name; it took a lot of thought (I didn’t have the courage to just use my name!). Yes, I’ve had a difficult past, and I had to think very hard about what to write in that comment before posting it. It’s safe to say I’ve reached a point in my life where I accept everything that’s happened thus far and am learning to live contentedly. I believe everything happens for a reason, and I am extremely lucky and blessed with all the love I have in my life. I am still finding out who I am, but now I live for myself and my loved ones 🙂 I will look at your blog this weekend. Thanks again for taking the time to comment. 🙂
