"Mom"

image by David Castillo

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!”

By Scott Bradford
