First Angel


Published: February 2008

First Angel

By far, one of the happiest days of my entire life
Was the day my first born daughter was born unto myself and my wife

The very first moment I looked at my newborn baby's face
I knew we both had been blessed with Creation's overflowing gift of grace

When I walked out of the hospital for the first time, with my tiny angel from above
I could never imagine how rich and meaningful my life was going to become,
because of her presence and love

Today, she is now thirteen years old...
I sit and watch in quiet amazement, noticing her inner beauty and individuality,
have really started to unfold

Endless words would never capture the depth of my love for her
I dread missing her one day, and her no longer needing me, after she's all grown up and mature

So I cling preciously to these present days that I still have with my little girl
The world is my oyster... and she is my shiniest pearl

Her shyness, love of animals, plants and music, and time alone...she's just like me
I hope that her life will be as magical and precious, as any earth angel's life can be

Watching the sunlight reflect from her curly hair, tan skin, and light blue young eyes
I love it when she sings or plays basketball, shoots the ball and tries

For I know all those subtle little moments of her effort will indeed add up, you'll see
They'll add up to that incredible young woman, my daughter is most destined to be

Always remember "my little girl", I love you so very much- probably more than you'll ever know
I'm signing off from this poem, but remember, your Daddy will never, ever, let you go
