My first sounds were your heartbeat and your voice.
My first face was yours.
My first taste of the outside world
Was through you.
Without you, there wouldn't be a me.
You impacted me
By helping create me.
And then agreeing
To house me for 9 months.
I must speak of a mentor.
Then I must speak of the mentor
Who has mentored me for 20 years
And through my hopes and prayers
Will mentor me for 20 years more.
You brought pen to me so I could write.
You brought tissue to me so I could cry.
You brought bandages so I could get up again.
You created me.
Then you helped me
Make the world mine.
The lessons learned
Will last for generations beyond me.
So I say thank you
For choosing me.
Mentorships are give and take
As we grew to a friendship.
I help you remeber the future is coming
You help me remember the past
Is not far behind.
All of this I will walk forward with.
Thank you, Mommy.
My First Human
