To my children

Monday, April 13, 2009

I remember the first time I felt a kick,
I remember the first time I held you in my hand,
I remember the first time you smiled and said ,”mama”,
I remember the first time I had to wave “good-bye”.

Years have passed and you are growing fast,
You have new interests that don’t revolve around me,
But it still warms my heart every time you say, “I love you”.

I look forward to your hugs and kisses,
Your quick text telling me how you are doing,
Your short post-it notes informing me where you’re heading,
You voice that echoes in my heart.

I know you’re on the path to your new life…

I’m not asking to be a sun or a planet in your solar system;
I just wanted to be a moon that casts an eclipse upon your world
so that at that moment you’ll be amazed at what I have to show you.

I know that you know that I’ll always be here for you.
