Five Years Ago

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

oh, wonderful . . . my oldest is 13, she still comes and crawls in bed with me when she doesn't feel good, I'm going to miss that when she's grown and gone

To answer your question in the first stanza, look at yourself in the mirror. What you see will give you lots of words for more poems as will your watchful eye over young Donovan. He will be a very lucky young man to meet someone like you - though I would be slighty worried if his future wife was exactly the same. And don't worry, he will always remember his mothers love, as we all do reading this.

Love is in the sublime form in mom-son relationship. me being a 'son' can relate to the other side of the story of your poem. for 'sons' their 'moms' are their first love and you never forget your first love. i guess i made some sense there.hehe. you see the topic of love between a mother and child can never be summoned with words. however, your poem was really beautiful.. full of love and emotional.

Very touching expression of maternal feelings....
Each mother goes through such emotional patterns...
liked the way you expressed yours....

Wow Chloe this is a heartfelt joy! An image of love basking in the eyes of his mother; you know his eyes twinkle with his love for you too. This put my feelings on a high...
