Parent’s love – Haiku

Haiku Friday

Once there were two
a boy and a girl in love
but they wanted more

inside her, you grew
swirling, kicking and growing

then, two became three
a little girl, daddy’s girl
a gift, a blessing

depths of emotion
never before realized
love for your own child

powerful, almost
indescribable in words
love, pure, true, honest

Fast forward, four years
happiness, joy, tears, laughter
you are light, love, bliss

loved, cherished, treasured
take on the world and know this
we love you always

* footnote: the huge red thing on her forehead. Yeah, they thought my water needed breaking, it had already broken. That’s where that thing, huge knitting needle tool, scratched her from the top of her head all the way down her forehead. It finally went away completely when she was about one month old.
