drifted down from above-
A handful of happiness,
a heart full of love.

so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
so lovable, too-
The world’s sweetest miracle,
baby, is you.

That never stop exploring the wonder of today.
Ten tiny little fingers that from the very start,
Will reach out for tomorrow yet always hold your heart.

his bait a silver star.

Our Very Own Son
Born not from our flesh,
but born in our hearts,
You were longed for and wanted
and loved from the start.
Conceived from a blessing
sent straight from above,
Our very “own” son
at last home to love.
How soft and fresh he breathes!
Look! He is dreaming! Visions sure of joy
Are gladdening his rest; and, ah! who knows
But waiting angels do converse in sleep
With babes like this!
Nothing is as precious or brings home so much love, as a brand new baby sent from above. (Anon)

Beauty with a cut on its finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket. (Anon)
