With each new day as I awoke
Like a spark I’d remember you were here
A smile would warm my face and heart
Those moments I treasure, so clear
I counted the weeks as they passed by
Your presence I felt growing strong
My joy and excitement thinking of you
Those moments I treasure, my life long
You wriggled and kicked more powerfully each month
My body stretching as it nurtured your growth
Blossoming too was my complete devotion to you
Those moments I treasure, Unconditional Love my oath
Then the moment arrived for us to meet face-to-face
Time stood still with a tangible sense of awe
The miracle of pregnancy and birth is a blessing in life
Those moments I treasure, forever more
Now the years have passed, and you are grown
But my memory of pure Bliss can still bring a tear
When you were first place in my arms
That moment I treasure, most dear
You are: my Joy, my Precious, my Beloved, my Life
I’ve Loved you unconditionally right from the start
Though life separates us, our Love continues and unites
Our moments I treasure, Eternally you are part of my heart

About This Poem
For all the special occasions I often write poems for my parents and put them in home-made cards using photographs of the family, they love this and with each one I do it seems they are more over-joyed. So, just before Mother’s Day in 2015, I sat to write a poem for my mum. However, after praying for guidance this poem was the result!
I was taken back, many years, to the excited feeling as I awoke and suddenly remembered I was pregnant, I loved being pregnant so this was a delight each morning. So, I just had to put that into words and then the rest of the poem followed on.
I gave my two daughters a print of the poem on a photo of me holding them as babies for Mother’s Day, as they are mother’s too.
The next day I did write another poem for my mum!
