A PRECIOUS GIFT


New life, little heart

Big love, to impart

Tiny fingers, tiny toes

Rosy cheeks, button nose

A newborns cry

A whispered sigh,

Of contentment



A joy to behold

More precious than gold

Rewarding, fulfilling

Many hands all-willing

To hold to cuddle

All in a huddle,

Of admiration



A Mothers joy, a Fathers pride

A wee soul a life to guide

First steps, first word

Endless questions to be heard

Oh such happy times

Of softly sang lullabies,

And nursery rhymes



Be thankful as you sweetly sing

for the gift of a child

is a wondrous thing

For Samuel William
