Birth Poem

This is a poem that I wrote for my son when I was 8 months pregnant. It's a promise that every mother makes to their child. My son is only 5 and a half weeks old and I feel so truly blessed to be his mama. I'm only 21 years old and this tiny little person has changed my life in a way I never imagined possible.

A Mother's Promise

© Nicole Seymour
I promise to always love you in whoever you decide to be
I promise to be there for you, whenever you need me
I promise to not pass judgment without first hearing you out
I promise to be in your life from day one and to learn what your about
I promise to keep you healthy and to help you grow nice and strong
I promise to teach you to be a good person and know what is right and wrong
I promise to protect you and to always know you are okay
I promise to always remember that being your mom is a gift, every single day
~~
These words my angel are my promise to you
And during tough times I will read them through
To be reassured that what I am doing is right
And never giving up without a fight
You are now and will forever be,
My sweetest little boy.. My baby
