I Have carried you, always.
Before you were conceived, I carried a part of you in my soul. When I met your father, I looked into his eyes and saw the other part of you, and knew you, and prayed that you would come to be.
Before you were born, I carried you in my womb. When you were restless I sang to you and soothed you and told you how I loved you.
When you were born, I carried you in my arms. I kissed you and held you close so that you would know that there is light and warmth and goodness in the world.
Later, I wrapped you in clothes and carried you close to my heart. I held you so that you could hear that my heart beats like yours; that we are the same, you and I.
Now, I carry you still, so that you can look at the world with confidence and joy and know that you belong; so that you can share all of the beauty of the world as an equal to all that live in it.
So know that no matter how weary you become, or what life holds, you can always depend on me for support and comfort.
When you grow older, my darling, know that I will carry you till the end of the world. I will carry you in my heart, for you are always with me.
I will carry you, always.
