In Only A Year

A year ago, I delivered him,
a baby of our own.
Nervously and sleepily,
we took him to our home.

We figured out the nursing.
“This goes how? and where?”
We were told there would be crying,
and how to show we care.

A year has gone so quickly,
yet we have learned so much.
We’ve felt a love so strongly,
in a baby’s gentle touch.

His laughs and smiles. His pouts and tears.
Wow! He can get so mad!
But we wouldn’t trade a minute,
as a thankful mom and dad.
