Birth Poem

The Gift Of Life

My child is more precious than anything else on this earth. A new life, a true gift. The moment we met, a bond we will always have, a date we will always know, a time we will always share, a celebration...your birthday!

My Perfect Gift

To celebrate is to embrace an act of wonder and joy,
To show the whole world you have a girl or a boy.

A date that will be written forever in time,
A life, a love, a child of mine.

Tiny fingers and perfect toes,
Rosy pink cheeks and a little button nose.

A true miracle, you are born tonight.
In my arms, I cannot stop staring as I hold you tight.

Held close beside my heart, I gently sway.
You're exactly 20 minutes old; you're here to stay.

My precious gift, my child, my light,
You are everything that's perfect; you are just right.

So hello, my angel; I'd just like to say,
Welcome my darling, and happy birthday!



I love writing ...funny, sad, happy, whatever I'm feeling.
It's a joy and I can leave behind all the noise of this world and go to places that make me feel, sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh.
It's therapeutic a lot ot of the time, life's journey can take us to places we didn't choose and writing helps me heal.
I just like to put into words...
