I remember…

I remember the moment you were placed upon my chest

…the breath taken as you nursed from my breast

…the touch of your soft hand on my cheek

…the feel of your body wrapped in my arms

…the pattern of your heartbeat against mine

…the glisten of your tears as they slowly fell

…the devotion to keeping you from harm

…the sound of your giggles and bare feet

…the flutter of your butterfly kisses

…the need and love you gave to me

I remember the moment your wings spread

…and flew free

    This is so beautiful! Mothers always have such feelings, but we all have to grow.

      Thank you. It is the greatest feeling to watch your child take flight, but also at the same time, letting go is the hardest.
