Five Years Ago

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe

I press my lips against your tiny head
I hold you close to my breast-mother's milk 
You smell like Heaven 
How did I have such a beautiful child?

Depending on me and only me 
You can always depend on me 
Mommy loves you so 
I will keep you safe and warm

Showering you with all the love that lives
Within me where you grew for nine months
How excited I was to feel that first fleeting butterfly
Your tiny foot kicking inside made me so happy 

How time passes by- blinking the sun 
From my eyes you are one- two-three
Four - five - years ago on this day you came 
Into my world -time passes too quickly

"Don't look at me", you say as you put
On your Spider Man undies
"I can do it ", you say when I say, let me
Help you with your shoes

The feelings are mixed-no longer so dependent 
Upon me -you are growing up quickly
So quickly and you are my world 
I know it will not be long- how can I let you go? 

You will say, "This is the girl I want to marry
She looks like you, see" 
I will nod and blink the tears away
So you will not see

I will watch you walk down the aisle 
With your beautiful bride
No longer are you dependent upon me
You have her -your helpmate

I blink tears away as I look into your eyes
Once again a different day I hold you close
You smell like Heaven 
Child of my child my love for you is forever

You can always call on me

A beautiful and powerful poem. Age had taught me to appreciate babies. I have my grandchildren now and I appreciate every moment with them. Life is very fast pace. Time will steal opportunity for us to spend time with our precious children. A excellent poem of love and wisdom of appreciation of love for child.
