“When They Placed You In My Arms
You Slipped Into My Heart”

Quote Title: Unknown Author
Poem: Trina Graves

When they placed you in my arms
For the first time after your birth
Is my most precious memory
Of my life here on this Earth

After endless months of waiting
Anxious that all would be well
Relief mixed with anticipation
As I floated under your spell

My love for you had grown stronger
Each day through pregnancy
In that moment it exploded
Awakening the Core of me…

I gazed tenderly into your eyes
Then mine watered with a tear
The pure bliss of the moment
As I embraced you, my dear

The weight of your little body
As I held you close and tight
Feeling your physical presence
Sensing your true Spirit Light

The warmth of your precious form
Now tangible at long last
Melted time’s candle to me
You became my future and my past

The sheer miracle of life
I possessed in my arms
Blessed always to be
Captivated by your charms

When they placed you in my arms
You slipped into my heart
Through Eternity we are bound
Entwined Souls to never part

      Thank you. My children are all adults with children of their own now, but I only have to think of that moment of my babies being first placed in my arms to feel such love and joy.


  2. I loved how you could express the miracle of life in such a beautiful way, it evokes all the emotions of love, awe, amazement, the spell of witnessing such a blessing, a new life! Perfectly worded dear Trina 🙂
