Baby’s Choice

I would like to share my favorite poem. I have been reading a lot of pregnancy books one of them is Chicken Soup for the Expectant Mother’s Soul. I found this poem and I weep every time I read it or say it aloud.

Baby’s Choice

Did you ever think, dear Mother,

As the seeds of me you sowed,

As you breathed new life inside me

And slowly watched me grow,

In all your dreams about me

When you planned me out so well,

When you couldn’t wait to have me there

Inside your heart to dwell,

Did you ever think  that maybe

I was planning for you, too,

And choosing for my very own

A mother just like you?

A mother who smelled  sweet and who

Had hands so (creamy white) In my case I will add (Soft brown) ,

A tender, loving creature

Who would soothe me in the night?

Did you ever think in all those days

While you were coming due,

That as you planned a life for me

I sought a life with you?

And now as I lay in your arms,

I wonder if you knew

While you were busy making me,

I was choosing you!

Told you makes me weep. I sure hope our baby feels this way ❤
