A Mothers Bliss


The most amazing thing
I have ever seen

Was the sight of my boy?
For the very first time

Those little hands
And tiny feet

With soft brown eyes
That melted my heart

His skin was soft
His smile so sweet

It made smile
To at last know my life's
Worth while

I was to scared to hold him close
To afraid Id break him some how

But when I finally did
It was a mother's bliss

The joy he brought me
Was beyond anything I'd known

To hold him close
Was a dream come true?

And that one singular moment
Now lives on in my heart
