POEM: full circle


when you first grew
in my body
I wondered how I could love
another child as much
as I loved my first
so deep has been my love for Megan
I couldn’t imagine another being
coming into that circle
but you, our sweet Daniel
you not only joined our circle
you somehow made it more complete
a loving embrace
to hold us all tight
seamless
as if you had been there all along
I believe in some way you were
always a part of us
even before you arrived

I always wondered too, Kayleigh, how I could love the THIRD child as much as the second....But there is infinite love in a mother's heart...And soul.
