Sabrina and Angelina

Sabrina and Angelina


We've seen your mother's eyes - how they ‘light up’
Like stars ‘mid dark nights… reflected by pools of clear water
She has a pride in her heart - a badge of honor
Knowing you exist... by all grace of God… in part 


Because she carried you into our world - into existence

Her connection between you both…made her feel - complete
She knew… both of you were hers… and she - yours
Touching her soul with love’s kind of 'maternal joy'… from knowing
You are family… your souls - eternally connected


We felt great love in her words as she described you - speechless
Awed... we ‘blushed’ so great pride… swelling from within
Sufficient…  ours ‘mimicked’ your mothers heart... as it raced full elation
While she stood watch… giving witness to you staring back at her - smiling


My daughters... we fell 'forever' in love with your mother - long ago
She completed us - nothing would ‘ever’ be more perfect
We’d become her prisoner… honored, revered and loved by her
Our deepest desire was for us to share both of you


I wanted daughters reminding us of your mother
So each time we'd look at you... we would see ‘her’ ‘mid your eyes

It's very, very, beautiful. Thank you for letting me share beauty of your heart. I think it's very rare and precious......only a few male can express in a piece like this.

Touchingly beautiful. I like the reminisces and how you worded them.
