You've always been

You've always been

A Poem by Laura E. Aranda

The moment you hold your baby in your arms for the first time, you wonder how could such a tiny bundle of thing creates so much emotions within you.


you've always been there

a figment of my childhood imagination

a want

a desire

a peice of me i needed

and now i wait

for soon you shall

fill my world

with your cry

i love you so

and have for so long
















A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
