First Flowers

“Here mommy! Here mommy!”
Little feet patter in hurried excitement
So proud as gently
He transfers little purple buds
Into my open palm
The first Flowers of spring
And the first Flowers
That he has given
In years to come he will give many more
And they won’t all be for mommy
But I will always remember
That his first flowers
Were for me.
-LM Jones

    what a beautiful poem about the love of a child and the knowledge that he will grow and also give that love to others, but you will never forget his love for you. ♡
