We Were Born

by Yvette Malavet-Blum, 2021

Only I remember when
You twisted inside of me
I felt the rush of life
Ready to come to be
It was us that were born that day
My life opened up so I could see
What it felt to love unconditionally
A life that came from me
Happy birthday my dear son
You live forever in my heart
And you will always be a part
Of all my creativity
We both loved to write
And you won an award for your poetry
I told you that talent
came from me
I framed it
It will always be
What I felt you received from me
Besides my smile that I hold
Close to my heart
