A great day

Time goes by quickly. It’s amazing to think that it’s been four years since I first held his little body in my arms…

Orion is your name

A treasure like no other
That’s what you are
I waited almost a decade
Just to hold you in my arms

Your tiny hands so fragile
Yet so powerful it gives me strength
One of my foot was on my grave
But your birth was all worth it

Orion that’s your name
The winter stars that shine the sky
Bright and visible like no other
Dominating my heart like no one had done

Oh you sure took your time
Waiting until I’m past 30
I almost gave up, So know 
I’m beyond happy to be your mom

    1. Thank you so much dear Ribby, I do love him a lot 💘 even when he end makes me want to cry of frustration at times at the end of the day, he still make a terrible day better.
