Happiness


All hope lost, gloom and misery
They said I could never be a Aai.
Then you came along, miracle child,
And I was happy.

The first moment I held you
Your little face turned up to mine
A wrinkled up nose, a lusty cry,
And I was happy.

Your little head on my chest

Unseeing eyes looking to me
Little fingers curling around mine,
And I was happy.


Then you smiled at me, a toothless grin
Called out to me, "Aai!"
Held my hand to steady your step,
And I was happy.

Now as you toddle along

Come to me for a cuddle and a kiss
My heart swells with love and pride
And I know I am happy.

  1. That is so sweet, I really like it. I think those feelings of love and pride in the small moments with children are so universal amongst all mothers, can definitely relate to it :)
