Poem About A Newborn

A father feels as if he is alive for the first time as he holds his newborn daughter in his arms.

Baby Girl A Father's Perspective

© Jim Mullen
Who would of thought,
to my surprise,
The day I looked in my daughter's eyes,
That I would find my sunshine,
my star,
my pearl,
All the thoughts in my head,
of this little girl.
You came to me late on the twentieth of November,
That day in my life,
I will always remember.
I did not know who I was as a man,
'till the moment you were placed inside of my hands.
And it was at that split moment,
when you opened your eyes,
your true identity was no longer disguised.
As the lights glistened,
in your beautiful eyes,
Inside I slowly started to cry.
I was given an angel, from heavens' above,
The final test as a man,
A little girl to love.
I believe by God,
I must have been touched.
I love you Julianna,
I love you so much.

Your face lights up,
whenever you smile,
A glow that can last an endless mile.
Your brothers,
they love you,
your mom and I the same,
You are the completion to our circle,
the caboose on our train.
