With every new miracle of life
answers aren’t scripted in the stars,
but I knew since your very first breath
my life would become yours.
Through innocent eyes and curious touch
each new discovery you shared,
your smile grew bigger than the sun,
your heart’s elation declared.
You stowed dreams in the clouds,
imaginings rose higher than the heavens.
Cuddling you in that first euphoric light
made me fall in love with you in seconds.
Life has blossomed into delight and wonder
in every part of its glowing greatness,
and with each ounce of my being,
my enduring love for you is ageless.

It doesn’t matter how old our children are, they are always our babies and we love them to bits. My son is a grandfather now but he is still my dear little boy!! Love the poem and the pictures.

Such a lovely post!

You are welcome ❤️
We do love our kids no matter their ages. A beautiful poem, Lauren
We sure do, John, and the memories of when they were little are beyond precious.
Thank you! ❤️
Yes they are.
How lucky they are to have a poem written about them.
Thanks, Anneli, and how lucky my husband and I are to have them. ❤️
What a gift of a poem for your children!
Thanks, Liz. I love them to bits. ❤️ And like others have said, no matter how old they are, they’ll always be our little babies. 💞
You’re welcome, Lauren. I know what you mean. My daughter is in California, and I hate not being able to see her on a regular basis.
I think we’re in the same boat, Liz. My daughter and son live on the east coast and my husband and I are in California. We talk all the time, but the feeling is the same. 💞
Being able to text and exchange photos on an ongoing basis has helped a little bit.
I agree. We have so many means of communication that it does help. 🥰
But how fast they grow…
This love is ageless
Yes, so fast! Forever ageless! Thanks, Selma! ❤️
A most profound love. Beautifully penned, Lauren. 💞
A beautiful window in time Lauren. Time sure flies.. Your children are adorable! 💗

You are very welcome.
Just lovely, Lauren. What a beautiful gift to your “kids.” 🙂 They’ll always be the kids, won’t they?
Thanks so much, Diana, and yes, they will always be our kids. 🙂 I miss them so much since they live across country. Ugh! But all the means of communication help, along with the visits. ❤️
That was lovely 🙂
Thanks so much, Ian!
What a sweet poem, Lauren, full of pure love. Perfect title too!
Thanks, Marina. I wrote this when I was in a “missing them” mood, more than usual. 🙂 Love and hugs, dear friend. ❤️😍❤️😍❤️ (emojis are back)!!
That ‘missing them’ mood was very sweet and moving. Many more hugs back to you and wishes for a wonderful week ahead!
Thanks again, Marina. Happy week ahead too. It’s been a rainy, relaxing Sunday. Hugs 🤗 and love ❤️!!!! 😘😍😘😀
this is so beautiful, touching post!
Thanks for your kind words, Mihran! 🙏🏻
Lauren, such beautiful words for your adorable children; the type of expression that assures your love is as real and deeply felt as it should. Beautiful!
