You, mean the world to me, I never knew how much I could love, until I met you.
I thought I did, but I was wrong.
You are so vulnerable, and so am I.
I know I need to protect you, that your survival is my domain.
I am humble, I don’t feel worthy, some moments I am afraid.
Each moment that I experience you, feed you, bathe you, hold you while you sleep, are moments where my confidence grows.
I am in an altered state, delirious in joy, and delirious from sleep deprivation.
You need, and I gladly give. I realize this is my new life’s work, to give to you.
I have purpose unlike ever before.
I am humbled.
I am forever thankful of you as my gift, to learn of my purpose, and my gift to the world.
My precious baby, I love you so.
