The fruit of our love tree

All great pieces take time
You took quite a while
I had gotten so used to negatives
They paled before your positive

I started feeling kicks
Even before you had limbs
Sonograms were my only view
I couldn’t wait to meet you

You made us a family
The fruit of our love tree
Motherhood only has love as its guide
You are my guide

I will always be there for and by you
But I know One who is more true
He lives in you
As you grow, let Him shine through
