    Portrait (Dedicated to my son Malakai)

    Never a portrait has been so unique
    Implanted on my mind forever
    Permanently
    The smallest of fingers
    that grasp every strand of hair
    The smallest of ears waiting to hear
    "I love you"
    I loved you then, as I love you now
    I loved you when I didn't know how
    When my days were filled
    with only thoughts of you
    When my memories didn't remember you
    And as my cheeks fall prey
    to your sun bitten lips
    I remember why I wanted this
    For a woman can never know
    such sweet bliss
    Till a child is hangin on to her hips

    I enjoyed this poem very much! I lost my youngest son in July of this year (age 27). This brought back sweet memories I never want to forget. Thank you.

    This is so sweet. I love the last 3 lines. I am a mother myself and I do agree since becoming a mother I am a changed person. Children can bring such joy to your life. Nice work

    This poem is so beautiful that it brought a tear to my eye. Its a phenomenal gathering of words, and I love it.

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
