Has anyone ever captured so well the rapt first moments of motherhood? Not for me.
This one is too beautiful!
Reread it a few times already!

Oh yes, I remember those thoughts, too.
You have written them so well I was transported back in time… 🙂

So very beautiful, a new life is always such a blessing and a little scary too, its all up to you… but so worth it, what a joy! I have always said there is no more peaceful or beautiful place in the world than to be holding, in the middle of a quiet night, that soft warm body in quiet time together… so lovely! 🙂 and I love that picture!!
The picture is adorable. The poem is so cute and powerful 😀
Beautiful – really captures the emotions of receiving the gift of a new life.
Its the now the matters, not the when or the soon to come …its now…enjoy the now…
So powerful and absolutely beautiful. It made me tear up thinking about when my own son was born. 💕
So beautifully written. Kids are love, I still remember my little one when came out she was crying and I was outside the operation theatre. But I know it must be my piece 🙂
When nurse brought her to me, she was crying, and when she saw me she stopped and kept on looking at me for a while, before she says hey I am still a kid I want to cry.
It’s love and pure love.
Understand how you feel, just now right there

She’ll always need a mum to hold her 🙂
Lovely moment of first parenthood. It reminded me of when I wrote ´What I love about her feet’ thinking back to when my daughter was born and what she gree into. Being a parent is such a source of bliss. Keep enjoying it

You brought tears to my eyes, Elan.
Sweet lines. It is so true. Babies are so delicate and precious!
There is both joy and tears raising children. Enjoy it while you can. Thank you. Great post but it reminded me how much I miss my daughters and grandsons… sad. Jx
There’s no greater joy than holding a baby, especially your own, or your baby’s baby.
Ahhhh…a flood of sweet memories.:0) Savor every wonderful, confusing moment…
I love that line you wrote “The future is a combination of instants”. So true and so well-said.
Thanks so much!
amazingly portrayed every emotion. and those lines
“I don’t know what to give her
In other ways……always
I give her all I have”…
speaks everything :*
Wow, very sweet.
Wow! Nice poem wonderful subject–Thank you Bill Cotton
❤ this! The photo and the poem go hand to hand perfectly.
Perfection. If this is autobiographical and you just had a baby, congratulations!
I love the picture,and think we were all that size once!!!!

This is absolutely precious
Did you just have a baby? Congratulations. This is stunning for capturing all that is impossible to.
Great tribute to all ‘little angels.’…;)
This is so beautiful! Very, very well written, and a poem easy to connect to. Thank you for sharing.
for real? you just had a baby and you can produce this? Wow. From what I recall of my life partner, she was in no shape as she was first putting hands on our little one. that aside, I’m inclined to throw in a word as the dad in the picture–I (strangely?) felt a lot of what you’ve written here myself, and remember that moment (now, by the way, 13 years ago just about to the day) like it was a moment ago. the ache of calmness is something perhaps all parents feel, though perhaps it takes a mother (who is also an excellent poet) to put it to words. thanks.

Very tender, Elan. If this is actual, have no fear. It all comes together.
Daughters or granddaughters are all the same and precious indeed.
