 ~HEARTFELT EMOTIONS~

A New Life


Woke up that morning - you didn't exist.
But before the day ended, it was you I couldn't resist.

The 1st second of your life you cried the wonderful cry of life,
There were no words spoken just smiles and tears seemed so right.

Your Mom just so worn out, you gave her quite a fight,
and your Mom needed her Mom just to feel alright.

The nurses swaddled you up so tight,
There was just your precious face shining in the light.

They came and handed you to me, my eyes filling up with tears
just knowing how privileged I was to welcome you here.

Looking at your bright big blue eyes so new to life,
I thanked God for letting me take part in the start of your --
WONDERFUL LIFE!

NOTE:  The baby is now almost 5 years old, my young friend is now married
       to a wonderful man and they now have another little daughter. They
       are now a happy family of 4!!!

2007 P A. Ingersoll
