Poems of Motherhood | January





1/4/19

You fell asleep nursing
I could tell
by your breathing
the way your weight felt in my arms
by your latch
I held you a few minutes longer
let you rest with me


1/6/19

you walked
rejecting my hands for help
you wanted to do it along
so I followed
watched you test your skills
watched you grow up in 10 steps


1/7/19

you were tired
so tired
I could hear it in the way you cried
so I gave you a bottle
but it was the tiny tidepool of tears
gathered in your ear
that broke my heart


1/13/19

We went to church
you showed off your new walking skills
running into my arms
crinkled nose
big grin
I scooped you up
sealing the memory
of tiny arms
around my neck


1/15/19

I went through your poems
remembering when you were smaller
when you fit in the sink
it goes like sand
like water
then it's gone


1/25/19

We're drawing to our close now
the baby stage almost over
you'll never remember it
but I will
I'll always cherish you
no matter how big
or small


1/29/19

One year ago
your due date
one year ago 
you were just a dream
about to burst into reality
one year ago


1/31/19

We looked back
at the tiny moments
that made up your first year
your beginning
broken up into small pieces
have made a beautiful whole.

I've been writing these in my one-line a day journal and I've really enjoyed it. It helps me to remember to write the moments down every day and not over think it. 

Thanks for reading! I hope you all enjoyed them! :)
