May I Remember This

It is easy for me to remember the first moment I saw your face.

It is emblazoned in my cellular memory. 

They placed you on my chest,

Naked and silent, wrapped in a royal purple towel.

We didn’t know for several minutes if you were a boy or a girl! 

Now, 8 years later you create for me beautiful hearts with fireworks!

May I remember this moment as clearly as the day you were born. 

Somehow, I know, based on my own history that this may not much longer be the case.

To my daughter filled with infinite Life, 

Named so appropriately, 

Know I love you dearly,

Even when things will surely

Begin to change soon…

After reading this poem to her, my daughter replied by saying:

“Here, mom, I made you a bunny.”
