Maternity: Huntsville, Alabama


Before you read this poem and cry  your eyes out, let me just say it was a complete joy and honor taking pics of Vania of Simply Bloom Photography. I wanted to go overboard, but at the same time, keep it classy and simple….if that makes sense. 😉 She was gracious enough to let me come into her home and basically rearrange it however I pleased. 😉 Thank-you again, Vania! 😉 I hope you are inspired by these soulful images, and they touch you deep.

I loved you from the very start…

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

Our life together has just begun,

You’re part of me, my little one.

As mother with child, each day I knew

My mind would be filled with thoughts of you.

I’m daydreaming of the things we’ll share,

Like late-night bottles and teddy bears.

Like first steps and skinned knees,

Like bedtime stories and ABC’s.

I’m thinking of things you’ll want to know,

Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

I’ve thought of lessons I’ll need to share,

Like standing tall and playing fair.

When I first see your precious face,

I’ll pray your life be touched with grace.

I’ll thank the angels from above,

And promise you unending love.

Each night I’ll lay you down to sleep,

I’ll gently kiss your head and cheek.

I’ll count your little fingers and toes,

I’ll memorize your eyes and nose.

I will linger at your nursery door,

Awed each day that I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I’ll dim the light,

And whisper, “I love you” every night.

As mother with child our journey’s begun,

My heart’s yours forever, little one.

I loved you from the very start…

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

Feel free to pin your favorite images for inspiration, but please be kind of my copyright and originality. 🙂
