Tamari Campbell A Precious Gift

Words of a Poet

A Precious Gift
A Mother's Love for her Daughter!
Tamari Campbell

I remember the first time I held you in my hands
I thought I would drop you
You were so small and fragile I thought I would break you
All these thought in my mind going around and around
How could I ever care for you or love you?
How would I ever be the mother I want you to look up too?
So many have problems each day trying over and over again
But I was chosen to have you my beautiful little one
I learned many things while I held you close to me heart each night
How you would breathe to the sound of my heart beat
It was so amazing seeing I was child myself when I had you.
Being fourteen years old not knowing where to even begin.
I raise you the best I could, through all my trails and errors
And so much pain I put you through.
I hurt you so many times not knowing how to handle things the right way
I regret many things in my life
But I can say without a doubt I never regret having you
My beautiful daughter of mine!
Now you are all grown up with a family of your own,
About to take another big step in your life and getting married,
I am very proud of you and how you have become such an amazing mother,
How you learned from my mistake not to repeat them and be stronger,
I love you Yamilette my dear daughter
You have grown,
You have learned
You have cried
You have struggled
But always remember you will always have your mother.
I love you deeply my dear daughter.
