~A Baby's Poem~


If only you would take my hand
I could show you my magic land
A place of eternal springtime
This is someplace uniquely mine

My Mommy's lap is always there
Safe and warm to banish fear
And when I fall and scrape my knee
Someone always comforts me

My teddy bear and I can play
Till darkness overtakes the day
When bedtime comes I know I'll see
A baby's crib awaiting me

My Mommy pins my diaper on
I know she loves her little one
Then on her lap with Dr. Seuss
Nursery rhymes and Mother Goose

I suck my thumb and close my eyes
Mommy looks at me and smiles
Softly kissing my forehead
She gently tucks me into bed

And if I waken in the night
Cold and wet and filled with fright
My Mommy is there to ease my fears
And wipe away my little tears

She brings my bottle of warm milk
And with a touch as soft as silk
While Mommy hums a lullaby
My magic land I know I'll keep
As Mommy rocks me back to sleep

Now if my hand you cannot take
And my land you would forsake
Judge not so harshly such as I
For fear my magic land would die.

Precious one,
So small,
So sweet

Dancing in
on angel feet

Straight from Heaven's
brightest star

What a miracle
you are!

~My Baby~


Ten little fingers, ten little toes -
Rosy little lips, and a button nose.
So soft and cuddly with a baby sweet smell.
Eyes so full of trust that I just can't fail.

I know a gift of God you had to be -
How else could something so perfect come to me?
You wiggle and snuggle, gurgle and coo -
Do you know of all the love in my heart for you?

Your eyes are getting heavy,
as off to Dreamland you go -
To dream of teddy bears, kittens,
and your Mother's love, I know.

I hold you close, and look at you with awe- as a
little silent prayer I say --
"Thank you God, and please help me mold
this little life the right way."
I put you in your crib so gently, and
turn to blink away the tears.

You're my baby now, but I know it's
just for a few short years.
