A poem for my new baby Maks.
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.
