You're big brown eyes,

So shiny,

You're soft warm body, 

So tiny,

You're skin softer than anything, 

You were hiding with an angel wing,

You're lips curved into a small smile,

Haven't seen one this genuine in a while.

You're so young,

But seems so bold,

You're so smart,

Even though You're only six months old.

Youre new ,

You're free, 

And I can see,

That you have great possibilities, 

No knowledge of the world at all, 

Not even a guess,

It doesn't matter to you,

Couldn't care less.

She walked over to me,

And placed you In my arms, 

Can you trust me?

I never before held a baby, 

But once she did,

And you looked into my eyes, 

My heart completely melted, 

And then I realized, 

How precious it is, 

To hold the future in my hands, 

Will you later be a hero?

Or travel to many lands? 

You could be the best,

You might be the greatest, 

But now you're just a baby, 

Covered in sweetness.

    yes to bad we can't stay that way innocent/without bias great poem you pen! ww


    Thanks TSG ~ Wonderful experience ~ beautiful poem ! I love Babies too and love your description ~ "Covered in sweetness " Also I love the way you foresaw the future in that tiny "bundle of joy" in your arms. Just imagine what it must be lik to be a Mum or (for me) a Dad ! The potential in each neonate is infinite another MOZART or another MARIE CURIE ~ who knows. This is why abortion or the killing of a Child (at any age) is so so horrendous ! Thanks for sharing and caring ~ BRIAN
