Love that Hurts by IzzyBeth

Love that Hurts

I do not know
how you felt
inside warm liquid
before you took
your first breath
But I know
you were meant
for my arms
my heart

I did not form
your body
I am not responsible
for your DNA
But I will be
in charge of
what you grow into

Your Mom
must have
been terrified
she had to let go
I am
knowing someday
you will too.

That is beautiful! I didn't know you had that in you! :)
