Close In Heart - Poem
On the day that you were born
I was holding steady
I had waited far too long
I was more than ready
But you took your own sweet time
Until that morning came
And then we raced to the hospital
You made it all a game
It didn’t take you long at all
To make your grand appearance
But just as quickly as you came
You made a startling disappearance
I was frightened and scared
Afraid you were gone
But when they finally put you in my arms
I Blessed God I would take you home
I thought I had motherhood all figured out
But after colic filled nights of tears
I was so filled with doubt
And felt I had aged at least a hundred years
But that seems so long ago
As I look at you today
My baby boy, grown into a man
Who lives so far away.
Though far across the globe you live
Your heart will always be
Held by your mother’s love --
You are close in heart to me.
