    My cousin just posted this on facebook in honour of her twin boys (born at 24 weeks) and World Prematurity Day:

    As I Love You Through The Glass

    As I love you through the glass
    a tiny hand sweeps across the blanket
    reaching out to me.
    You lie there in the stillness
    of your slumber clinging to life;
    I reach inside to touch you
    and you stir slightly;
    I feel a tiny breath like a feather
    caress my fingers
    as I love you through the glass.
    One eye opens
    easily staring into mine;
    Can you see me?
    Can you feel my presence
    as I love you through the glass.
    I ache to hold you;
    I await the moment
    when you peacefully rest in my loving arms.
    A silent tear rolls down my face;
    I slowly turn to walk away
    only to glance back one more time
    as I love you through the glass

    Very emotive poem!
    Thinking of you…
