My Angel

The first time I met you
was on the ultrasound.
You were still so tiny
with lots of room to move around.
 
When I met you in person
and you were laid on me.
I looked down at this tiny face
I couldn’t believe you were here for all to see.
 
Now you have another birthday
and very soon you’ll be three.
I pause and I wonder
when you’re all grown, what will you be?
 
Did I prepare you enough
when you finally leave the nest?
I hope I taught you right from wrong
and to be your very best.
 
And I hope you don’t mind
if I call you those baby names.
Cause that’s what is so dearest to my heart
our simple little baby games.
 
And if soneday you are doing
what I done years ago.
And looking down upon a tiny face
only then will you know.
 
That there’s no better gift
then a child sent from above.
but perhaps the best gift
is that of a mother’s love

My Tribute

My Grandmother
 
 
She would light up a room
with a simple smile.
She would cheer you up
when you’re feeling down.
She would make you laugh
with a silly face.
She would make you love her
when saying nothing at all.
She is my Grandmother
who I love and adore.
I wish she didn’t have to leave us,
because I want more.
I miss her, you see,
as any granddaughter should.
And I know she would be here,
if only she could.
I wish she could have seen
my children when they were born.
But I know she’ll be around,
to keep them from harm.
I love you Nan
and I miss you much.
But I know you’re here with me,
it’s just a hunch.
So, I’ll talk to you later,
even if it is in my dreams.
At least that’s one place,
You’ll always be seen.
