An Ode to Mom ~ Prose & Poetry Contest #BigsmallMomsRule

"I opened my eyes & I knew love,

Long before I could spell it out...

She held my little fingers & looked in awe,

I looked back & knew I wouldn't be safer anywhere else,

Many years later, as I hold her wrinkled hands,

She smiles at me with the same benevolence...

As the nurse placed my bundle of joy in my arms,

I knew...

Life had come full circle, as I held my baby's hand"
