Snapshot

Curved against my curves,
and tucked into my smile.
Eyelashes soft against the darkness.
Dreams laying across your face
as you let go of the day...

I look at your innocent face
and wonder at the wonder
of the child so swiftly moving
towards the boy that he is now.

My eyes sting as I note
the lengthening curve of his jaw.
Toes peeking out from
under the duvet drawn up,
and all around those big ....big feet.
Long and longer legs
outgrow my lap daily,
it seems...

But for now, I hold on tight
to this moment,
this mother and child tableau.
I will always keep this picture
close in my heart,
and never change one line.

Happy B'day my little Coffee
Thx for being in my world.

Liefs Coffee {=}

Your little boy is becoming a young man...but keep him close as long as you can,
Give him room to explore and make mistakes...to understand himself this is what it takes,
Watching him grow older might make you nostalgiac and a little blue...but you are this boy, this young man...and this child is you...

Wishing you and your 10 year old coffee a lovely day of celebration and reflection...and don't forget, he will need his mom the next 10 years as much as ever...Happy Birthday to the both of you!

Coffee,

That is one of the loveliest poems to a child I've ever read. Only a truly loving heart could write that.

You have touched me.
