I Carried You - Poem by Jane Quijano
I remember the day I carried you
So tiny, so fragile and new!
I walked with knees trembling
But I tarried and carried you!
I remember watching you so
Dissecting each part to know
Whether your eyes are mine,
Or you took the arch of my brow!
Good you had grandma's nose
That part of her I gladly choose!
Your skin not fair as fair can be
But golden and beautiful in its entirety!
I remember your first smile
Did an angel played with you awhile?
How fleeting and sudden that was!
I could be a clown for it to last!
I remember you crawl and stand,
Sometimes you stumbled and cried
Trying to walk without my hand...
Bravely took steps and a mile is done!
I cannot keep you, you have ran
While I walked with you on our ground
You found a path of unknown land
And carried your own little son!
