Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart

This poem was sent to me with a necklace that has baby footprints on a heart. The poem is so true and Caroline's time with us, although short, truly has touched all of our hearts forever.

Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart

When a baby arrives,be it for a day, a month, a year or more,

or perhaps only a sweet flickering moment-

the fragile spark of a tender soul

the secret swell of a new pregnancy

the goldfish flutter known to only you-

you are unmistakeningly changed...

the tiny footprints left behind on your heart

bespeak your name as Mother
