A Poem for My Babies

New Year Family Photo
i fill my senses
of your soft, powdery scent
and smile in wonder
at the miracle of
having you in my arms.
you are the most
glorious testament ti
love i will ever lay
my eyes on…
so much so that
if tonight’s breath
is fated to be my last,
i shall leave
this life replete,
because you were part
of the joys that
filled up
my journey’s path.


needing love…

coming alive
at the simplest touch
to the soul –
people just need
to love and be loved.
a smile, a hug, a kiss,
a gentle word that
speaks of infinite care –
are gems to hearts
always aching,
persistently longing
to be seen for
what they’re worth.
