Love Poem

On that day,
when your tiny lungs
at last expanded with
their first airy breath,

Chubby arms flailing about
swimming in the air—
milk-blue eyes gazing
about in awed wonder…

On that day–
the day that you were born,

my heart
had not yet started beating.

And though,
a few years would pass

my newborn infant cries would
pierce the air,

Every milestone marked,
every step traveled

Only brought you closer to me…

To that day
when our hearts would collide.

each mark deeply embedded
each scar you endured
every joy your spirit soared through
further molded for a perfect fit…

lovingly wrought,
intricately sculpted
no detail overlooked

Created by a Master
Who wrote the Master Plan.

You are
more beautiful now
lines on your face

subtly nesting on your chin…

take my breath away.

The years
we collect together

further mold our hearts
join them
into one.
You were made for me.

And I’m so glad.

Happy birthday, My Love.
