Six Weeks – A Poem (For Tiny Boo)

Six Weeks

(For Tiny Boo)

Six weeks your limbs stretch after the womb,

Like a butterfly ready for flight;

Six weeks your eyes blink and blink in wonder

At a world of colours and light;

Six weeks your scent fills our hearts

With milky sweet promises of alright;

Six weeks your rosebud mouth crinkled and close-

Maybe that smile will come tonight.

Six weeks we have loved you;

Six weeks watched you grow;

Six weeks we have cuddled and held you so tight.

And six weeks is ended, and yet –

And yet.

We will always remember. And love you all night.
