There is life growing
within the spaces of my body I once despised;
a new heart beating against the insecurities of my own,
fullfilling me with strength
I did not know existed.
you are still as small as a rose petal,
yet for your mother you are greater than anything this world contains;
for you have filled my body with life
and you are nourishing my spirit with seeds of love.
I keep pressing my hands against my stomach,
wishing you were already within my hands,
but good things take time;
so I will wait patiently until the day we meet
and I will kiss your cheeks and small hands
until your cries soften and you fall asleep.
I wish my words were enough to express the love I feel towards you,
but my tongue is unable to speak what my heart has felt
since the day I knew you existed.
Within my twenty years upon this world
I have never felt stronger
until you became my very source of happiness.
