Hi There Lovely Poets: -)
I wrote this poem about my babies and would love to know what you think. Too sappy?

Mother Of Light
You started as a droplet inside a shell,  
Warm, languid, liquid.
Now that safe harbour,  
Has turned you into a sea.
To create you, every wonderful thing I've thought,  
Every ray of light I've ever seen,  
Was harnessed in that single drop.
To nourish...to divide,  
Cell by cell
Pouring forward from me,  
Toward my ultimate worth.
I didn't know it,  
But until that point,  
My world had been flat.
You helped me peek over the edge,  
We looked into an unfolding universe,  
Then you jumped with me!  
A galaxy of light and giggles
Radiated through me,  
To get to you.
Spirit and Soul,  
Light and Hope.
You are so much more
Than an extension
Of my heart or limb.
I am, because of you.
You are, because of me.
Forever bundled in love,  
I get to be your Mother.
