Birth Poem

Baby's Point Of View In Future

I wrote this poem today (4 DEC 2007) for my wonderful husband, Dan, and it's today that I am exactly 32 weeks pregnant with our daughter, Autumn. It is written from her point of view on the day she is to be born (29 JAN 2008).

A Look Into The Future

Published: December 2007

Someday, I'll stand beside you, holding your hand, to let go of a life filled with love, and though you will be gone, I'll always have the memories we've made together, Daddy...

Someday, I'll hold out my own child to you, and ask, "Would you like to hold your grandchild, Daddy?" knowing that my children will forever be safe in your arms, just as I was in yours so long ago, Daddy...

Someday, I'll stand beside you, holding your hand, walking down the aisle to start my own life, my own family, with a man I love almost as much as I love you, Daddy...

Someday, I'll hold out my hand, and say "Daddy, please?" as I ask for the keys, to start my journey, to start a career, but I won't forget to call, Daddy...

Someday, I'll stand beside you, but that doesn't mean I agree with you, for we will fight, and you will probably win, and I may say things I don't mean, Daddy...

Someday, I'll hold your hand, and wonder what this new school will be like, and you will reassure me that everything will be alright, and I'll be glad you're there with me, Daddy...

Someday, I'll stand beside you, although wobbly, and you'll have to hold me up, for I have to learn how to walk on my own, but I still need you, Daddy...

Someday, all these things might happen, but for now, you hold me tight, and I stare at your tear-filled eyes with my own new eyes, for today is my birth day, you and Mommy made me nine long months ago, and I'm finally here, and Daddy...I love you so.

A really beautiful poem with a great message for a father from his yet-to-be-born daughter. I enjoyed the words of this poem, having raised two daughters and now have five granddaughters.

Good poetry!
