I could stare at you this way forever,
                        Your perfection and wonder how from me you came.
                                                 And why.
                                                         Why I was blessed in such a way, entrusted. And how,
                                                                                                                                    How, beauty born
in this cruel world could be.  Can I protect you?  And I wonder if.
If you'll be okay, if I'll be enough.

 And as
I wonder,
You sleep, at peace, so sound.
You know not yet of worries and questions and concerns.
                 New still, you know not much.
                             Later, I will teach you.
But for now, I'll watch
                           and wonder.



  1. I really like the layout and flow. "How beauty born in this cruel world could be." This voice works for the sentiment.

  2. This is just beautiful, gentle and heartfelt :)

  3. well, babies do have worries, eating, getting their diapers changed and getting attention. simple needs, but they are needs.

  4. All of these thoughts I, as a mother, have wondered. So lovely!

  5. such a great layout and flow so much love and really heart felt in this piece well penned
