Talcum Powder Delight

Bringing you home

Talcum powder delight

Our first bath

Healthy lungs

Growing appetite

 

Huge expectations

Your future forseen

World of possibilities

Lump in my throat

Aching inner-heart strings

 

Love and fear

Such ferocious emotion

Our little princess

Bending hearts and minds

Building an empire of devotion

 

To your beckoning

Every cry and kiss

Such painful anticipation

Always worrying

What we might miss

 

Just can’t conceive

Leaving you alone

Fed, burped and bathed

By someone else

In a strangers home
