Poetry Friday: Baby Words

Baby Words

I thought my heart had reached
its maximum capacity,
little one.
But when I saw you so tiny
in your black and white world,
I fell in love with a stranger.

I don’t know you but I can’t wait to.

I can’t wait for all the hats
I’m going to make you
that won’t fit.

I can’t wait to defend
your tiny body
from your overeager siblings.

I can’t wait hear you
snuffle and coo and cry
in your baby words.
I’ll whisper back
in my grown up words,
“I love you.”
