My Random Ramblings

She loved him with all her heart…
Even though they were yet to have their first meeting.
And when they did meet after the long wait,
It was nothing like she had expected it to be…
Her love for him grew as she gazed into his wonder-filled eyes,
Her eyes overflowed with tears as she watched him curl his tiny fingers around hers.
She held him close to her heart which was threatening to burst from all the emotion.
She held him in her hands, her eyes never leaving his face,
She smiled through her tears as she listened to him wailing.
She was his first love,
And he was her little boy,
And that was the first and the last time she had smiled while he cried…
