Sweet Baby

Do you know I have already seen you?
You are so far away from me,
yet I have felt the touch of your soft skin.
I have stared at you in awe…
marveling at the fact that you are mine.
I have felt you in my arms,
as I touched your fine hair
and stroked your smooth, round cheeks.
I have looked at your sleeping face,
as I wondered if you looked like me or your daddy.
Oh, how I do not want to awake from these dreams
and return to my place of empty arms.
But for now I will.
I can only try to remember you, little one,
And the feeling of you nestled in my embrace.
I will try to hold onto that feeling,
finally knowing what it is like to be a Mother.
I will try to remember that dream with hope and not with sadness,
Praying that maybe…
Just maybe
My Sweet Baby
Is not so far away after all.
