I Fell – Dedicated to My Daughter

image

You were a preconceived notion, an end to sadness and pain

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

You quickly became a reality by God’s answered prayer

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I saw the tiny heartbeat flickering

I fell

I heard the whoosh whooshing of that same heart

I fell

I felt those first tiny flutters

I fell

I saw my DAUGHTER on the big projector

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I was in and out and up and down; the doctors kept you in

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

You burst into this world

with eagerness weeks later

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I heard your first wails

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

They laid you on my breast

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

You wrapped your tiny fingers around mine

I fell

Your brown eyes locked on mine

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I kissed your damp forehead

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

You suckled greedily for your first meal

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

 

Your daddy walked in the room

I fell

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I fell in love with you baby girl, my Anneliese, from the IDEA of you right down to the LIFE of you.

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

My baby girl, my Anneliese, I fell. And I fell hard! And I will be forever falling, forever loving, forever yours.

Happy 6 Months my Beauty!

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark     !

Always,

Mommy

I Fell | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark
