Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart

This a poem that came with the a beautiful necklace my Mom gave after my first miscarriage.  I just came across it & wanted to share it with all of you.

Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart

When a baby arrives,
be it for a day, a month, or year or more,
or perhaps only
a sweet flickering moment
the fragile spark of a tender soul,
the secret swell of a new pregnancy
the goldfish flutter known only to you-
you are unmistakeningly changed...
the tiny footprints left
behind on your heart
bespeak your name as Mother.
