Observations of a Husband/Dad/Math Geek/Writer/Soap Box Owner/Wine Lover

I know you, I made you

Written for my beautiful wife… Dedicated to amazing mothers everywhere…


Together we grew, together we learnt,

Shielding you, nurturing you, feeding you,

Every shimmer, every thought, I felt you,

We were one before I knew you,

I know you, I made you.


Wrinkles, tears, cries, and smiles,

Touch, and sense, fingers search,

Fall and I drop to catch,

Explore and my eyes guide you,

I know you, I made you.


Sneeze, wince, groan aloud,

Shivers in the rain,

Chill winds rattle your bones,

Turn to protection, I am there,

I know you, I made you.


Roam free, run wild,

Slide, swing, ride, and glee,

Need thee turn around, no,

Joy or pain, we share the same,

I know you, I made you.


Sweet dreams engulf, sleep,

Peace is the shelter I give,

Murmur, cough, or cry,

Wherever I lay, I always hear,

I know you, I made you.

  1. As heartfelt as all the sentiments laid out ahead of it…the last paragraph is my favorite. Those few, final words really do summarize all the love that comes forth beforehand.

  2. Beautiful. She’s a lucky lady to have a man who can so eloquently express his love.

  3. Lovely!
    Thanks for following my blog.XDXD
