Never Before

A poem for my new baby Maks.

Never Before

Never before has a person loved
An ear, an eye, a mouth so much.
Ten mini fingers, ten tiny toes,
A chin, a shin, a sweet little nose.

And never before has one adored
A smile so much, an “ah-goo” more.
Your happy face, your furrowed brow,
Your sighs, your cries, I love them all.

Years from now, when you’re old and gray,
And you look in the mirror and look away,
Know that a person never loved
An ear, an eye, a nose so much.

And know that this love still follows you,
Wherever you go, whatever you do.

  1. Hi Tina

    Beautiful poem. It took me right back to my first rapturous moments of being a Mum.

    (I’ve had quite a few since — along with some curious, serious, furious and incredulous ones over almost 30 years of being a Mum.)

    Anyway, thanks for the read, and enjoy this special time with your little one.
