Baby Poem

Cherishing Time With Your Baby

My name is Lucy and I am a mother of two. My son is now 6 and my daughter is 3. I started writing poetry for my children when they were very young because I wanted them to have the poems from me when they are older so they can see how much I have always loved them. I never ever understood how powerful love could be until I had my children. This poem was written for my son Jonty when he was 2 years old.

Sweetest Moments


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2016 with permission of the Author.

If I could go back to a time for a while,
It would be to the moment I first saw you smile,
To the time when you tottered that first wobbly walk,
To the moment your babble turned into talk.
I would lie down and hold you after your bath,
I would tickle your toes and cherish your laugh.
The look in your eyes when you suddenly knew
The face in the mirror was sweet little you,
That giggle you gave with a look of alarm,
As you realized your hand was attached to your arm.
The times when you cried as you'd woken at night.
I held you and rocked you, then tucked you in tight,
The moments you showed you were caring and kind,
So proud and so strong your beautiful mind.
These moments were riches beyond all else.
You won over my soul, my all, my self.
You grow each day, and I watch with such joy,
My wonderful, kind, and sweet little boy.
