Faultless Embrace

Day 9

We challenge you today to write a poem in which something big and something small come together.

For some reason this challenge got me thinking of the first time a mother meets their child.

I didn’t know such happiness could be felt,

with all the damage that through my life I had dealt.

I so big, compared to her small fragile body,

needing so much love and so much protection.

And yet in her small frame so much perfection.

As soon as I saw her I knew I’d love her forever

because she herself was a treasure.

With her in my arms everything felt right,

life seemed bright and there was a new reason to fight.
