Well…Linda at Truthful Tidbits told me about her granddaughter’s monthly poetry post….and I thought it would be a great chance to share one of my poems! I enjoy writing poetry but don’t often share it with anyone. But this one was about Tyler and I thought the timing would be great – and, then, don’t you know…the monthly poetry thing was cancelled. Not surprising.
But, I decided to share anyways. I am not a poet….but I’m always trying different ways to express my heart. (I’ve even written a few songs…but those I will definitely keep to myself!) If you’ve put your thoughts down poetry style….share it with me!
I wrote this right around Tyler’s first Heaven birthday………….
So often I am tempted to concentrate on all that I will miss-
You getting a driver’s license & your first car
Your first girlfriend & that first kiss
Where would you go to college?
Who would you marry?
When you took a job, what title would you carry?
But then, I stop and remind myself
I am the luckiest woman in the world!
I was the first one to caress your downy red head
with my cheek,
I nursed ear infections and chicken pox
those special country music songs!
I am the luckiest woman in the world
For fourteen I was your mother and
Forever, and for always, I will be Tyler’s mom!!!
