You were God’s gift to me
You were my way out of loneliness and sadness
When I lost myself, I found you

I carried you in my inexperienced womb for 9 months
Felt your kicks and turns almost every hour
Your weight on my tiny bladder was of no bother

Sharing you was inevitable…
Losing you was unbearable
Your cries brought miniature smiles to my fatigued face
I discovered a new type of love
One that connected me to you physically, emotionally and spiritually
One that made me proud to put my dreams aside and pursue motherhood

My son, you were my life, my pride and joy
Others may come and go, but what I know for sure,
You were my true love
