Poem - OMG I'm still crying! Lol!

Hi everyone,

My Mum just sent me this poem on one of those facebook things. I never normally read them but did as it was from my Mum and she never goes on Facebook normally.

It's so lovely and made me cry.

Here it is...

To My Child

Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face and laugh when
I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to wear, and smile
and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and
take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach
me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off,
and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles..

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you
scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one if he
comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you
grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand
over you trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy
Meal so you can have both toys..

Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about
how you were born and how much I love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch
and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my
favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I
will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever

I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the
mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of
their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching
their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't
handle it anymore.
And when I kiss you goodnight I will
hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank
God for you, and ask him for nothing, except one more day...

  • Hi I found this poem somewhere(i actually think it was on here!,so sorry if the orginal poster reads)I copied it into my sons first baby book and even now when i read it i well up lol.....

    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 grew,
    My mind filled with thoughts of you.

    I'd daydream of the things we'd share,
    like late night bottles and teddy bears.
    Like first steps and skinned knees,
    Like bedtime stories and ABCs.
    I thought of things youd want to know,
    Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

    I thought of lessons i'd need to share,
    Like standing tall and playing fair.
    When I first saw your precious face,
    I prayed your life woud be touched with grace.
    I thanked the angels from up above,
    And promised you unending love.

    Each night I ay you down to sleep,
    I gently kiss your head and cheek.
    I count your little fingers and toes,
    I memorise your eyes,and nose.
    I linger at your nursery door,
    Awed each day Iove you more.

    Through misty eyes,I dim the light,
    I whisper "I love you" every night.
    I loved you from the very start.
    You stole my breath,embraced my heart.
    As mother and child our journeys begun,
    My hearts yours forever Little One.

    Sorry just had to share lol x
