Sandpaper Dreaming

A little sandpaper smoothes the edges
The final touch that makes the job complete
You think of your angel yet to be born
This crib represents your loving protection

The final touch that makes the job complete
Is the love that was poured out each moment
The crib represents your loving protection 
You have been working and praying for days

Is the love that was poured out each moment
enough to keep your little baby safe?
You have been working and praying for days
Deep inside you trust God will answer

Enough to keep your little baby safe
Not to prevent her from experiencing pain
Deep inside you trust God will answer
A balanced life for your girl with no name

Not to prevent her from experiencing pain
Emotions good and bad will complete her
A balanced life for your girl with no name
You smile as you try to come up with one

Emotions good and bad will complete her
Your heart searches for a name that's strong
You smile as you try to come up with one
Sara floats gently across your mind

Your heart searches for a name that's strong
It needs to be pretty and inspire a poem
Sara floats gently across your mind
The very first gift she will ever receive 

It needs to be pretty and inspire a poem
You think of your angel yet to be born
The very first gift she will ever receive
A little sandpaper helps smooth the edges

Nette's "Build Your Own Sand Contest"

I removed from the contest because I went over 20 lines.

    This poem is great... That number of lines stuff... stifles creativity... and lowers the emotional impact... But a contest is a contest... Loved this one....
