This is love


I remember now
Your fresh eyes,
Watching the world,
Sweet mouth around
My ripe breasts,
Tiny fists clutching
A loving finger.
Pain now dimmed
By emotion’s wave,
From that moment
I was delivered
Your wrinkled body,
An agonising wait
For that first
Breath of air
Outside my womb,
Where you lay
All those months,
Changing my body,
Expanding my mind,
While we decorated
Your waiting nursery,
With seeds sown
By lover’s passion.
