My One and Only Chance

Before you came into my life
I thought I’d set my ways.
I did not need a little one
To clutter up my days.

I did not have the the time for
Anything that might take away
From all I thought I wanted;
I was living for today.

Little did I realize
Just how much that I could feel
For someone who is a part of me.
These feelings I tried to conceal.

When you entered into the world
You turned mine upside down.
I cannot recall what life was like
Before you were around.

Since you came into my life
You’ve kept me so entranced.
I can’t imagine life without you,
You’re my one and only Chance.

Artist's Description

A poem with a play on words. I wrote after the birth of my firstborn son, Chance. He was & still is the best of me. . .

(I won’t say he was my first child because I have 3 wonderful step children that I helped my husband raise and that would seem to diminish their or my value in some way.)

Chance was born prematurely, 2 months early. He was 3 lbs. 8 oz. which is actually a good size for being born so early. He spent 28 days in the NICU and was overall healthy, just small.
He was able to come home when he was about 5 lbs. This picture shows how small he was, just a tiny bit bigger than a preemie cabbage patch doll.
He will be 25 years old Feb. 1, 2012. a beautiful, talented, loving young man.
He still is My One & Only Chance
