Flutter Kicks

The first time I felt my baby kick,

It was nothing like they said.

It didn’t feel like butterflies, or

A quickening within.

It felt like nothing I’ve ever felt before.

It felt like my entire life would never be the same.

And it felt like the love of my life

Had just tapped on my shoulder

And whispered “I’m here”.

He's Not like the Others

He’s not like the others.

He doesn’t chase me around

He doesn’t crave my attention

Or get jealous of others.

He loves me humbly because he knows.

For he knows I love him too.


He loves me not for the pieces of me

That are usually pursued.

But for the pieces of me that

He has already captured.
