When you were born

Updated: Nov 9, 2023



When you were born

For Sadie


When you were born, my child —

the sun soared through white clouds, rejoicing in light,


When you were born, my child —

the sky broke wide with songbirds, bursting in blue,


When you were born, my child —

the leaves shimmered green, glittering in promenade,


When you were born, my child —

the branches stood tall and proud, bending in gentle bows,


When you were born, my child —

the tulips danced pink and yellow, shining in dappled light,


When you were born, my child —

I held you against my breast, crying in vibrant life,


When you were born, my child —

I knew love as never before, shattering open my heart in unbridled joy.

Happy 15th Birthday, my child. You have changed me “for good.” 🌈🎶

Love you always,

Mama/Mom/Magical Mother 💕🤗
