Poems written with a baby on my lap: #5
I remember the first time
that upon my shoulder you laid your head
All of my time stood still
with my shoulder adorned it cuteness and red
When did you learn emotion
or that this simple act meant so much
could it be that it’s ingrained in all of us
the power of human touch?
Your perfect trust is something I don’t deserve
and yet you freely give
you teach us adults how to act
to be humble, love, and live
Lily my daughter, you are something special
you ways and energy a power so unique
and even though you don’t form “words we understand
there is a force with everything you say and speak
Never forget that you are you
a person, loved, and that is love
you are not all being, all-powerful
that is reserved for the one above
But you have a gift, a talent, and spark
that is yours to find and share
so live your life with reckless abandon
and the utmost care.
Imagine what one simple act
you did probably unknowingly could do
so as you grow and live and go forth
never stop loving, never stop caring..
never stop being you.
