Treasures of My Soul

I held an angel in my arms today,
A precious babe snuggled against my breast.
And my heart was overwhelmed with so much love,
As she lay contentedly at rest.

I watched her as she slept so soundly,
Gazed at her cherub face in sweet repose.
I marveled at her tiny features,
Like her perfect dainty ears and button nose.

I brushed my lips against her downy head,
Her skin like velvet to my touch.
I gave thanks to God above for His priceless blessing
Of this little angel girl I love so much.

The birth of my first grandchild has awakened,
A joy that my soul cannot contain.
From day one my heart's been stolen by her,
But you won't be hearing me complain.

    This is a perfect tribute to your grandbaby - I call poems like this a Heartstone because it is a touchstone in what we share as to what's good & beautiful in humanity... Nice work KM ... MoonBee

    wow, Kim, is it true that you just recently held your first grandchild. I had two when I was still in my 40's!! now I have six because my son just married and has two stepkids! this is a really nice way to do that contest. I just know it will get a win.
