WHEN A CHILD IS BORN

No words can express my elation at becoming a mother Show my tears of joy on that perfect wintery morn Go and show my parents our tiny new born son Snow flakes fell like confetti on the day that you were born Haze of my brain adapting to your daily routine Ways to make you happy was all this mother knew Lays you in a rocking crib where you drift to sleep Days flew by like lightning, how quickly you grew How proud we are of the man you have become Wow them son, go show the world you're the best Ciao my beloved child, you're always in my thoughts Now fully independent and you have flown the nest Writing Prompt- Let's Write a Lento- Poetry Contest Sponsored by Dear Heart 1/31/20

You have a right to be proud of your wonderful son, Jan. It can't be easy to raise a boy, but yours still keeps you in his life and that says a lot. Best wishes in the contest with your lovely Lento. Hugs, carolyn
