POEMS: “Those Moments I Treasure” by Trina Graves (on motherhood)


“Those Moments I Treasure”

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
