We were in the hospital and I was laying on the bed watching him sleep in his bed. It inspired me to write this poem to him. I wrote it on a tiny piece of paper that I had next to the bed. Shortly thereafter, I fell asleep and never found that piece of paper again.
I almost thought that it was lost forever. I'm so happy to have found it.
Now I can share it with you...
Someone to Love Me:
A Poem to My Newborn Son
Every day I wished that I could have someone to love me for just me
To love me, appreciate me, unconditionally
I thought I needed a man to do this for me
Until you were born...
You inspire me to do better in life, if not for me, then just for you
You uplift me with your smile when I am feeling down
You drive me to live and be happy
Who would have known that the one thing I thought I did not want or need
Would be the one thing to make my life absolutely complete
My son, my joy, my happiness, my blessing – one day you will understand the depths of my unconditional love
Now I can truly say that I am living and loving life...
