I wrote this when I was a young mom, shortly after my first baby was born and I was overwhelmed by the love I had (and still have) for her.
Watching her sleep, so helpless and small
The greatest gift from God
The most beautiful miracle of all
Tiny and wonderful, full of love to give
She smiles in her sleep, having angel dreams
I reach down and touch her cheek
Stroking her soft pink skin
Looking into sparkling, wide eyes,
Laughing over a tiny upturned nose,
She has brought joy and love to an empty life.
