The Birth Of A Mom

I was so scared.

I didn’t know what to do.


Until I held you.

babe in arms

And then all I knew

Was to love you.

And look at you.

And wonder at your existence.


You made me a mom.

You made me strong.

You gave me power.

You created life in me

When your life I created.

And when I look back

Looking Back

I’m so very grateful

You let me be scared.

And loved me-

Just for loving you.


Happy Birthday

  1. Colleen, what a beautiful ode to your baby! My little one just celebrated his first birthday yesterday. He’s walking and tearing up everything in his path. Brilliant illustrations by the way!!


  2. Happy birthday belatedly to your family member (daughter) who is extra special making you a better person, a wonderful mother. It is a continuous growing experience, for all of us, being the best we can be… hope to be… This was perfect expression of motherhood to me, how I felt, too. Hugs, Robin
