Nostalgia

How I miss those days
when I was the only one who could fill your needs.
Those months that I carried you,
safe in my womb,
my body nourishing yours.
The happiest times of my life:
back when you were all mine
and I didnít have to share you with the world.
I carried you like a secret,
I would hug you to me,
a knowing smile on my face.
I was blessed with you
as others looked on with jealous eyes.
How could they possibly know the joy I felt in my heart?
Your first movements
were mine to decipher.
An elbow? A knee?
Hands spanning my belly,
trying to feel the source
of my elation.
I cherished those moments,
knowing they would end all too soon.
When you were born,
I thought our private times were over.
But when you smile at me
and snuggle up to me,
I know the bond we forged back then
grows ever stronger.

Tara, this is *L*O*V*E*
A bond all mothers know.
Thanks for sharing it.

Well, I can't relate to the carrying part but I can to the sentiment. Beautiful, Tara.

This poem really moved me Tara......
Brings back those glorious feelings of oneness with the child yet born......
Precious moments.....

A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!
