Your body did not conceive me.

Yet your mind saw who I was.

I did not physically grow within you

But my soul started, then

grew in your heart

It took longer for me to get here

Than you wanted

(We both had growing to do.)

I came when it was time.

I can not speak the words I want,

So I smile and hope you hear

These special words

That are just for you

“Hi MOM!”
