My Babies by TAB_that's me
Love Poem Poetry Contest contest entry

Tiny little hands
I loved to hold
wriggling toes
on chubby feet
folds of skin
beneath the chin
Oh, how I loved you so

Waiting in awe
for each new thing
the first coo

a new tooth
first roll
on blanketed floor
sitting now
look at you
a first word
then two
Oh, how proud I was of you

The toddler walk
then off to school
gymnastics, dance
and shooting sports
softball, baseball
you weren't little anymore

suddenly then
grown and gone
the empty nest
but forever in my heart

Years flew by
and changes came
new babies
made their way
and history repeats

Tiny little hands
I loved to hold
wriggling toes
on chubby feet
folds of skin
beneath the chin
Oh, how I love you so
