This Mother's Love

This Mother's Love

No words are sweet enough
To capture the essence of your sleeping form
Nor fierce enough to know how I would give my life for you

I touch your tiny hand
Flesh more precious than the finest treasures
This world or any other could ever hope to offer

In this moment we are one
I breathe in your warm exhalation
Synchronising my breath with the rise and fall of your chest

You intoxicate me
I hold you closer knowing every perfect inch of you
The warmth of your body a gentle reflection of this mother's love
