The Gift Of Love

Dedicated to my beautiful baby daughter to whom I gave birth on 15/01/09. Weighing 7lb 6oz,
this is to show my love for Emily Grace xx

Two big blue eyes and a button nose,
Two tiny hands and ten squirmy toes,
Two peeping eyes and a beating heart,
A  newborn life still at the start.

A precious gift two people create,
A special bond no one can break,
A strong sense of love so soft and mild,
The gift of love is between a mother and child.

A desire to protect and love and share,
Promise to take it with you everywhere,
For motherhood is a lifetime gift,
For some it is their only lasting wish.

A bundle of joy, to love and treasure,
The gift of love is spending time together,
Making the most of every smile
Time goes fast and they're only babies a short while,

The gift of love is not chocolates or flowers,
It's getting up to change nappies in the early hours,
To then rock your baby back off to sleep,
It's your gift of love to hold and keep.

Vicki Wroe, 18. (C)
