Almost, Christmastime

	Almost, Christmastime





I am unwrapping my gift.

Unwrapping [his love] he left in a Christmas stocking with

My name (Ayesha) on it.

Seeing my baby boy for the first time.

I love just hearing my newborn son cry, scream and I love his baby babble.

He is adorable.

As a new mom I get excited I finally have my 1st baby.

Believe me I have goosebumps as I write this poem.

Days after he is born I decide to get 20 Birth Announcements made and to
send them to family and to all my girlfriends.

I sit up in the bed in my private hospital room and I look into my baby boy’s eyes.

I adore his dark cocoa skin that resembles my own and his papa’s.

I vow I will teach him to love himself so he can love the way God made him.

As I look at my newborn son’s face I see a tiny miracle.

He is mine.

    Yes but he has yet to be born. I always wanted a baby boy my cousin Chanel has a 1 year old son that has dark brown eyes like mine. He's cute.

    Dear new friend..this poem, Almost Christmastime, made tears fall - happy tears - because you understand the gift given by the Great Mother (or Father) and the faith put into our very selves to hold, love, teach and find wonderment from their eyes as they see the world for the very first time! A miracle given to us! You understand my poems about my beloved child & I thank you for your compliment(s). You will know the most amazing joy in the journey you two will take together..Love, light and laughter, Elizabeth
