I Feel Like I'm Addicted

I feel like I’m addicted
But it’s not to any drugs.
If you’re a brand-new grandma,
You’ll give nods and knowing shrugs.

For a baby born to one of yours,
Especially the first,
Opens such a flood of feeling
That you feel like you could burst.

Though I’m sure I’ll wean myself away
As time goes through its ticks,
Meanwhile I must visit Henry
Just to have my daily fix.

    Just a sniff and gentle cuddle. Then through the rest of my life, I can muddle. :)

    You are more maternal than I am, Ilene. You are like my mom. She just adores the little babies and this is a cute poem.
