Most Precious Gift


Nothing compares to the gift of Motherhood. 


Most Precious Gift

My hand gently reaches to where you grow

My eyes wonder at the moulding show

I speak words of loving whispers

I sing songs of fairy-tale gestures


Reflecting on your haven within

Embracing a somewhat tender grin

Knowing that inside you’ve made your home

Together the changes not experienced alone


Cradling my thoughts of whom you’ll be

Anticipating the future, waiting patiently

Throughout the months a creation being formed

An extension of pure love about to dawn


The days are drawing to holding you close

Confident that you hear my echoing boast

Longing to linger into your baby eyes

Yearning to comfort your newborn cries


I vow to be devoted to your welfare

I promise to protect, nurturing with care

Unconditional love & discipline, I hold dear

Guarding you from harm, hurt or fear


My life was shaped for this moment

Carrying another life carries no atonement

Highly esteemed I’m destined to live

A  mother you have made me, a most precious gift

    Your writing has a way of grabbing the reader by the heart and into your words. These two lines simply captivated me.

    “My hand gently reaches to where you grow

    I have never seen anything more beautiful in this world, thank a pregnant woman. The image is fabulous. Such a beautiful piece of writing, dear Salwa.
