The First Time - Poem by Kaila George

The first time I touched his small little hands

It was exquisite to the touch

Such soft sweet little hands...I smiled with mother pride

The first time I lay his tiny little feet to my mouth

My senses were reeling with the delicate little feet

Then I lay claim to those eyes...big wonderful almond shaped eyes

There was laughter as he stared right back at me...then from that

To an aching love that only a small child could give

With an unconditinal love, I touched his delicate skin

Lovingly I caressed the wonder of my boy

My tiny...Little...Wonderful boy.... ooh what joy

    Heartfelt Kaila, such a touching poignant expression of the joys of being a young parent, and looking into that child and hoping but the best for them, a truly lovely read, it portrayed a scene of true tender joy. (Report) Reply
