Holding a Baby

Poem by: Please

Summary

I was inspired to try this rhyming pattern by Foxglove... she carries it off so well, and this is a place to learn so i thought i'd give it a try.... anyways this is about holding my older sister's (not the one who is on booksie, she is my younger sister!) baby. She lives with us, so I hold him a lot, and i have wanted to write about it for awhile, but didn't get around to it... but hear it is, please leave comments. Thanks :)

I used to be afraid of babies

I always feared I'd drop them

my mind would overflow with maybe's

when others to me brought them

 

But when my sister had her child

I realized something new

In my arms so sweet and mild

My body knew what to do

 

My hip pushed out to accommodate

His need for a seat

I felt my legs separate

To put more balance in my feet

 

I felt next, my spine shift

To better support his weight

Then I noticed my chest lift

His breathing to imitate

 

My arms, then, curled around him

Held him protectively

My heart and soul then crowned him

Mine instinctively

 

I've never felt or known the trust

That child gave to me

With my fear gone, I learned I must

Trust my bodies ability
