On The Day We Met

 

Hello sweet baby girl

in your silky newborn skin,

with your eyes so beautifully wide awake.

 

To be sure, facing eternity this early in the day

is not possibly what you expected,

and not necessarily a piece of cake.

 

I know you can’t appreciate or realize it all quite yet,

just be aware that we noticed

that you accomplished great things today.

 

Taking fearless first steps,

reaching out and touching those

who will always love you faithfully.

 

And reminding us,

that we’ll always take the greatest care,

as we journey with you on your way.

 

A Note From Chris

I am posting this for dVerse Poets Pub ~ Open Link Night ~ Week 41.     I have chosen to use another beautiful fantasy painting by Josephine Wall of England.  It is used with her express permission and please be sure and enjoy her gallery and website.
