Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart

My dear friend, Tracey, shared this poem with me...the words, so sweet, bring tears to my eyes, yet a smile to my face knowing I am Lily Katherine's mother.

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.
