A Mother's Song

Oliver and I eat our breakfast and watch the Disney Channel in the morning. This morning in between Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Special Agent Oso there was a little segment, a poem read by Jennifer Garner. It was a poem about mothers and their sweet babies.

Mother's Song a Traditional Lullaby.
My heart is like a fountain true
That flows and flows with love to you.
As chirps the lark unto the tree
...So chirps my pretty babe to me.

There's not a rose where'er I seek,
As comely as my baby's cheek.
There's not a comb of honey-bee,
So full of sweets as babe to me.

There's not a star that shines on high,
Is brighter than my baby's eye.
There's not a boat upon the sea,
Can dance as baby does to me.

No silk was ever spun so fine
As is the hair of baby mine.
My baby smells more sweet to me
Than smells in spring the elder tree.

A little fish swims in the well,
So in my heart does baby dwell.
A little flower blows on the tree,
My baby is the flower to me.

Ten thousand parks where deer do run,
Ten thousand roses in the sun,
Ten thousand pearls beneath the sea,
My babe more precious is to me.
 I'm sure it was the crazy pregnancy hormones that did it but I immediately started to cry. I watched my little boy, no longer a baby through the tears and I thought about all he will see. I thought about how far we have come, from the first day we became a family to our first night at home. All those sleepless nights and days cuddling on the couch.

I never knew I could love someone as much as I love Oliver. The way he says "Oh, Toodles" every time he sees Mickey Mouse, or how his new favorite word is "Tees" it means "cheese". Everyday he amazes me and I am so thankful that he is mine.
