Quarantine Baby


My quarantine was different than most,
In late May I became a parent,
The moment I looked into her angelic face,
The first time her eyes met mine,
It was apparent, I never knew how much love
You could have for another living thing,
I felt grace, a wave of pure happiness
Rushed through my being,
As future memories flooded my mind,
Like I was already seeing
All of the firsts in her life,
The first steps she takes,
The first words she creates,
To that first bike ride
Making butterflies flutter on the inside,
The first boy she wants to date
To those magical bells on her wedding day,
All of these images flashed
As tears of joy started to run down my face,
I just needed life to slow it’s pace,
Just once I needed it to be my proponent,
I just wanted time to stop,
If only for a moment.
