Dear child of mine

Product of my DNA

This thing that I created from nothing

To something more meaningful than time

In flesh and blood you squirm

Wonder in my eyes I see

the little bundle growing up;

Cannot believe time flies by

Soon you will walk and talk

Outgrow my warm hugs

I wish I stood by taking notes

To freely observe these moments

than living it; So precious and fragile

life is to us; For now let me slow down

Take in a few deep breaths

and allow it to wash over me
