Poems of Motherhood | February






2/3/19

You love your cake
this time
with so many
gathered around you
if you ever forget
how loved you are
I hop you'll watch the video
and know


2/5/19

You're back to 2 naps
hallelujah


2/6/19

We woke to snow
piled high
it made me want to toss you in it
but you have no snow suit
so we watch it fall
through panes of cold glass

2/7/19

Yesterday
you rolled
you fell
down the stairs
when I close my eyes
I can still see you
tumbling
eyes frightened
body out of control
I can still see it
tumbling


2/9/19

You cried
Daddy was gone
just you and me in a strange, dark house
so I held you
tucked you close against me in our bed
realized just how long you'd grown


2/16/19

I remember thinking
this
is what I want to remember
you
falling asleep in my arms


2/27/19

I love how you yell
to hear your own voice
to hear how it echoes off the walls


Thanks for reading! :)
