Iconic Inspiration

Adult Holding Child’s Hand by phanlop88/FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Always there …

my cushion,

an unfailing support system.

Even when the mistakes

are mine alone

she proffers tissues

to soak my tears,

bears outstretched arms

to catch my fall,

listens to my woes,

shares in my joys,

encourages me with my vision,

believes in me

when no-one else will.

I aspire to be as good a person

as she …

as dedicated.

Such an amazing human being,

my friend:

my Mother.

My first blessing.

Foot of New Born by anekoho/FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Those eyes,

so pure and innocent,

snaring me.

That skin,

so soft and beautiful,

waiting to be kissed.

The hair,

so fine,

angel wisps between my fingers.

This fragile being,

my creation,

my dependent,

taught me

the true meaning of love.

My first divine gift.

My child,

my everything.

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
