There you are sleepy almond eyes of greenish-blue
Fluttering chocolate lashes so long finally peeking up at me
Yes, I’m your Mama with a captured heart that’s already whisked away
Cozy now, swaddled in a warming blanket of softest touch
Underneath I’ve counted them, 1 to 10 on each fragile foot and chubby fist
Doctor, don’t you see the ‘perfect’ cradled babe within my weary arms?
Brushing such an angel face of pinkest warm next to mine
Glimpsing damp silkiness sneaking under striped cap of knit
Watching my precious newborn’s chest rising up and down
So shallow to my ear I’m bending near
To catch the spittle of the next hush-a-bye breath
Do you hear my own heart beating, brimming overwhelming love?
Like a waterfall rushing over mountain rocks…..surging solid strength
Rolling new of word on silent tongue…Mother, Madre, Mama… that’s me!
Oh, the sound so lyrical to my head ears are dancing…
