My Daughter Rebecca

Mother's Heart
author unknown
I loved you from the very start
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun
You're part of me my little one
 As mother with child, each day I grew
My mind was filled with thoughts of you
 I'd daydream of the things we'd share
Like late-night bottles and teddy bears
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC's
 I thought of things you'd want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow
 I thought of lessons I'd need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace
  I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love
Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek
I count your little fingers and toes;
I memorize your eyes and nose
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more
 Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper, "I love you" every night
 I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart
As mother and child our journey's begin,
My heart's yours forever little one.
Thank you Rebecca for making me a mommy. It is the greatest joy of my life! I love you!

    I found you on one of the forms where you replied to another new person to blogger. Hope you don't mind, and also hope you don't mind me following you.

    I'm a mother to 10 and half month old boy. I'm new to blogger and it'd be nice to get to know some people on here. :)
