By J Ann Crowder

Baby boy, you write essesnses of joy on my heart—changing its rhythm to infinite soul drums and heart soothing strings on harps
 
Tis’ truest melodies of love—joy stricken and drunken on her purest poisons
 
No word to describe this feeling of euphoric bliss
 
As your long awaited arrival has finally come
 
Our eyes gaze upon each other moments after you leave the womb
 
You, with a bewilderment’s twinkle residing in eyes ever so radiant and an angelic softness upon your gentle, wrinkled brows
 
A wonder
 
A sense
 
Mother and son so interconnectedly bonded
 
Skin upon mine, listening to our hearts tapping in rhythm—familiar and entreating
 
Magic, smitten and spell binding
 
All mine in your love, baby boy
 
All mine

Benjamin was born on Saturday at 1:35pm. 7.8, 20 1/2. I am almost 40 years old. It’s been almost 10 years since my last child was born. Still, it will never stop amazing me! Life is a gift and so is motherhood. It’s bitter sweet knowing Benjamin is my last. Such a wonderful experience!

Congratulations on his birth. This is a beautiful poem. You could recite it at Benjamin's graduation and when he receives his PHD. I'm sure everyone would love it.
