like yesterday, i welcomed you into this world, tiny knees curled to chin from a world wrapped in darkness. you emerged bringing with you so much joy. my heart felt the fullest the first time i held your wet slippery body. so full. so complete. i'll forever remember that moment when from a family of three we became four. i remember your eyes, blind and searching closing softly on my chest. our heartbeats slowing to the same rhythm. and your fists wrapped tight, my hand covering yours. i believe that when the history of the world is written this moment, with its hum of lullaby, will be recorded. a few ticks after 7pm on a drizzly thursday evening, you are one for the books.
penny rose i didn't know my heart had a void until you filled it. i'm so glad you're mine.
