Poems for Expecting Mothers

First Flutter

A flutter felt so light, a gentle sign,
Within her grows a life, so pure and sweet,
In this brief touch, a joy so divine.

A tiny kick that dances in a line,
Through her, the baby's rhythm skips a beat,
A flutter felt so light, a gentle sign.

In moments still, the heartbeat does align,
Each little move, a silent, soft heartbeat,
In this brief touch, a joy so divine.

It feels as if the stars themselves entwine,
The magic of this life, oh, such a feat,
A flutter felt so light, a gentle sign.

This promise made with every subtle shine,
As days advance, the future's warm and neat,
In this brief touch, a joy so divine.

Through fleeting flutters, signals intertwine,
Her love grows strong, a bond none can defeat,
A flutter felt so light, a gentle sign,
In this brief touch, a joy so divine.

Nursery Rhymes Unheard

In a room so warm and bright,
Songs I sing in soft twilight,
Little dreams in lullabies,
Gently float as moonlight sighs.

Cradle rocks in silent cheer,
Words of love, so near, so dear,
Tiny ears, though yet unborn,
Hear the tune of love each morn.

Humming songs of future days,
Guiding light through night’s soft haze,
In this nursery, love’s song grows,
With each note, our bond bestows.

Baby dreams beneath my heart,
To these rhymes, a tender start,
In this room of gentle care,
Love and songs fill the air.

The Shape of Love

With tender curves and growing grace,
A mother’s love begins to trace.

The lines of life drawn day by day,
In quiet strength, they softly sway.

Each flutter felt, a loving touch,
A bond that deepens, means so much.

Her belly swells with life’s pure light,
Through changing forms, her heart takes flight.

A whispered song, a gentle sway,
In these moments, love finds its way.

Her body molds, her spirit soars,
New paths to tread, new dreams explore.

The nights of wonder, days of care,
Together, love finds everywhere.

Through every ache and joy she finds,
The shape of love in her designs.

A promise made with each new day,
In simple acts, love’s grand display.

From tiny kicks to growing heart,
In every beat, they’re never apart.

Her hands caress the life within,
A dance of love beneath her skin.

With every curve and every line,
A masterpiece of love divine.

In every change, a story told,
A love that grows, a love to hold.

The shape of love in forms so new,
A journey shared by just these two.

Through this dance, a future bright,
The shape of love in pure delight.
