About the Poem

The special request: Cheryl, of Northern California, writes that she just gave birth to a beautiful, healthy, seven pound two ounce baby girl during the first week of December. Kristen Marie has her father's dark coloring, Cheryl says, but she isn't likely to get anything else from him. A single Mom, Cheryl would like a special poem, something she can give to her daughter when Kristen is old enough to appreciate it. Something to tell her what a wonderful, joyous moment her birth brought into her mother's life.

I was inspired to write this poem after reading Cheryl's request. I am a mother and I have shared the experience of birth and the miraculous gift of life. The bond mother and baby share is truly a miracle in itself. I hope this expresses what Cheryl was searching for. Congratulations, Cheryl!

The first moment,
I knew you were a part of me.
A small gift from Heaven
That God gave to me.

I nurtured your body,
Your spirit, and soul.
A bond only mother
And baby can hold.

I anticipated the day
I would see your little face,
My Angel from Heaven,
For whom my heart hold a place.

You are a little bit of Heaven,
Innocent and pure.
You were worth every minute
Of the pain I endured.

Then I held you in my arms,
And gazed into your eyes,
The bond we share, unspoken,
The love we share, the ties.

My beautiful daughter,
You have made my life complete.
You are Mommy's little Angel,
I love you, Kristen Marie.
