Poems for New Moms

A Divine Surprise

New life stirs, a gentle hum,
Softly spoken, "she has come."
Tiny hands, a dream's delight,
Stars that shone in deepest night.

Morning breaks on softest cries,
Sunlit sparks in sleepy eyes.
Love unfurls its boundless sweep,
Cradled whispers, peace in sleep.

Each breath a novel verse of joy,
Bound in pages, girl or boy.
Mysteries in every coo,
Life anew, and dreams come true.

In each sigh, a song complete,
Life's serenade, both soft and sweet.
A divine surprise, tenderly wrapped,
In arms of love, forever clasped.
Morning's First Light

My Soul Got Split

A piece of me, now yours,
Breath of life, new doors.
Eyes wide with shared light,
Bond sealed, hold tight.

Heart beats, echo mine,
Your smile, a sign divine.
Fingers clasp, a silent vow,
My soul got split, here now.

Every laugh, my echoed sound,
In your gaze, my world found.
Tears we share, joy and pain,
You grow, love's gain.

A fragment borne with grace,
In your steps, my trace.
Two halves, forever fit,
In you, my soul got split.

Sleepless Nights

Night lingers, eyes wide,
Soft cries pierce the quiet tide.
Weary arms, gentle sway,
Love’s labor, night and day.

Moon watches, stars keep,
While the world lies deep in sleep.
Silent hours slowly creep,
Promises a mother keeps.

Tired smile, small feet,
Tiny victories, moments sweet.
Each sunrise, worth the fight,
Sleepless nights hold new light.
