I stand in awe; when newborns are
Settled into warm cozy beds
~ Living and breathing in our world ~
Time to time turned, shaping soft heads.
I feel; full to overflowing
With love that bursts forth in my soul
~ For the innocence of new life ~
One great gift God chose to extol.
I wonder; if this small person
Will someday be all they can be
~ Or maybe stray from goodness that ~
Anchors honor and decency.
I understand; motivation
And the freedom to make a choice
~ Hinges on strength of character ~
And how high one lifts one’s small voice.
I believe; The Lord God knew all
Before you filled your lungs with air
~ Like ev’ry amazing new life ~
The Almighty chooses to share.
