JUST A POEM

MOTHER AND CHILD

It was the hum of your voice
That etched the first smile on my face.
The beat of your heart
Against my own
That made me feel safe.
The touch of your cool hand
On my fevered brow
That let me know
I was loved.
And the release of your hand
Setting me free in the world
That let me grow.
