You were so very cross
When first I saw you.
Raising you're new voice in
All heard you, your
Objection at being
Taken from your Warm
And tranquil home.
But never had I known such bliss,
Than to touch my skin to yours,
And caress you with a mothers kiss
Your anger eased as your lungs
Breathed the first of the very
Air that would see you through
Until your last.
This was a whole new frightening
World from the one that you had known.
But I made my promise to keep you safe,
Even when you are old and grown.
Time stood still as I became lost in the
Depths of purity that were your eyes
. Innocence gazed at me and I gazed back,
Innocence that this world had not yet touched.
I watched you grow from that moment on,
And I watch you still, remembering
Every little thing. Storing in my mind all the
Chapters of your childhood.
For when I am old and you come questioning me
And ask Mum?
I can smile and say I remember those things Son.
