being so close to you Mommy, I was lulled to
sleep when you were walking today, the
gentle warm waters rocked me so.
you feel me kick today Mommy? I have been
practicing so long for you to feel me, I
want you to know I am well and growing.
hiccups tonight, I just can't stop them
coming and it feels so strange-I hope they
don't keep you awake too.
a somersault for you Mommy, I turned over
and back again cos I found I can still do
it, I won't be able to soon but I
s'pose that will make you glad!
I heard for the first time, Mommy-I heard
your heart beating slow and steady next to
mine; will your heart always be close to me?
have a lovely voice that I will recognize at
once, for I woke and heard you singing-will
you sing to me when I'm cradled in your
must have been in sunshine today, for I saw
red colors shining through my fused eyelids.
I want so much to see you and the colors you
I wish I could always be this close, Mommy,
protected and stretching and growing under
your heart, but I know you tire easily so I
must be in your arms!
you to love me forever, Mommy- I've prayed
God will make my skin really velvety soft,
so you will want to touch me and cover me in
told me He's preparing me as a gift for you,
He's shaping me in a secret place known to
just us three…
asked God to help you love me, Mommy, to
make me the best baby just for you-He
whispered," Just relax and be yourself,
that's all you have to do"
