I look at your dirty hands
I remember them so small.
Fingers long and slender
I made sure to count them all.

I look at your gleeming eyes
I remember them big and bright.
With long and black, thick eyelashes
I was jealous at their sight!

I look at your head full of hair
I remember it bald and smooth.
Then the curls came in soon after
Your first haircut it did remove.

I look at your smile so beautiful
I remember your toothless grin.
Your first pearls that came at 3 months
Now you're almost toothless once again.

I look at your kindness and generosity
I remember you made my heart swell.
Your first words were music to my soul
"I love you, Mommy" you soon would tell.

I look at you growing before my eyes
I remember you from the very start.
With every kick and flutter I felt
You brought happiness to my heart.

I look at my wonderful son today
I remember tears of joy and pain.
Giving birth to you gave me a new life
I'd do it all over again and again.

Such a beautiful tribute to the love that a parent feels for a child. Well done!

Beautiful tribute and they grow up far to quick, I'm still reeling that my little baby is now 4!!

Cast your eyes on the ocean,
Every man goes down to his death bearing in his hands only that which he has given away...
