To My Second Child I Loved Another Before You

To my second child,

You’re not my first; that much is true.

I loved another before loving you.

I’m a different mother this time around.

More calm and confident I’ve found.

Since you came, there’s a new dimension.

Two children now want my attention.

I was so excited first time ‘round.

This time I want to slow things down

Your ‘firsts’ will all be ‘lasts’ for me.

Last crawl and last to ride my knee.

You were not my firstborn this is true,

But the last child I will have is you.

You’re the last lullaby I’ll ever sing.

And ‘lasts’ are a special kind of thing.💙
