To My Child, the Sweet Heart

I loved you first.

From the very first,

your father and I watching

as I ripened and bloomed,

nine months of connection.

Every kick, every nudge

was noted with love,

and you came to us.

From the very first,

with every beginning,

I loved you when you were little,

and even as you grow,

just know this for a fact my love,

that I have loved you first.
