FOR MY BABIES

I carried you beneath my heart
To feel you move was such delight
And as you grew so dreams did start
I longed to see and hold you tight
So love is born

When time came for your arrival
And pain came strong in waves at night
Silent prayers for your survival
Ensured that things would be all right
And you were here


I gazed upon your tiny form
Checked all your fingers and your toes
Wrapping you snug to keep you warm
And felt we were so very close
I loved you so



And now you've fled the nest and gone
Your infant days long in the past
Your growing up has all been done
Yet here you are until the last
Inside my heart
