For Valentines Day - A Different Kind of Love

Haiku Friday

I loved you before
you were born, I sang to you
and told you I did

"I love you", words I
whispered for the first time, in
a hospital room

"I love you" as I
rocked you, through first cries, first teeth,
baths, bites, steps, and falls.

"I love you" as you
grew, so tall, your face losing
pudge, becoming boy.

"I love you" as I
hold you while you watch favorite
shows, nuzzling your hair.

"I love you" as we
switch from crib to big bed,
changes as you grow.

"I love you" and then
one day, words I'd seen in your
eyes since you were small.

"I love you" and I
melt, hearing it the first time -
"I lubbu Mama."

Hearing that for the first time is awesome!
I promise you, it never gets old. My 3 year old still melts me when he spontaneously says he loves me :)
