Treasure Island

April Humason

(Fort Worth, Texas)

I never got to


I never got to hear you cry
I never got to hear you laugh
I never got to see you smile
I never got to see you crawl
I never got to hold your hand
I never got to hold you in my arms
I never got to look at your expressions
I never got to look into your beautiful eyes
I never got to feel your soft skin
I never got to feel you heartbeat
I never got to tell you I love you
I never got to tell you I'm proud to be your mom
But I know that one day
I will get hear you cry
I will get to hear you laugh
I will get to see you smile
I will get to see you crawl
I will get to hold your hand
I will get to hold you in my arms
I will get to look at your expressions
I will get to look into your beautiful eyes
I will get to feel your soft skin
I will get to feel you heartbeat
I will get to tell you I love you
I will get to tell you I'm proud to be your mom
Because this I know we will meet again in heaven and I will get to spend eternity hearing, seeing, holding, looking, feeling and telling you everything I'm missing doing now.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
