Mother’s Day Memories:
The first time I ever saw your face, looked into your eyes and fell hopelessly in love each time just like the first. I didn’t know I could love someone so much let alone four times over.
The 1st time you smiled my heart smiled too as bright as the sun; the 1st time you laughed I held my breathe for fear I would miss the sound of your voice; the 1st time I put my nose up to your mouth so I could smell your breathe so sweet; the 1st time I touched you and couldn’t believe anyone could feel so soft; the 1st time I watched you sleep so I could make sure you would breathe all night long; the 1st time you were sick and I knew what it was like to truly feel my heartache, the 1st time you went to school and I felt my heart break; the 1st time someone hit you on the playground and your dad had to hold me back because the momma bear wanted to hurt someone; the 1st time you rode your bike and I couldn’t breathe as I watched you soar; the 1st time you fell in love and I knew, I knew, I knew it was time to let go even though I didn’t know how…
the 1st time I heard people say enjoy this as it goes by so fast and now I know just how fast.
It was just the blink of an eye, the beat of a heart, a moment in time, a flash of a smile, a tinkle of a laugh, a sigh…
