My First Child

A precious gift! Joy unimagined fills my heart She smiles! My heart races, leaping! And like a butterfly in spring, gliding, It dips among new blossoms Like a sweet melody playing softly in the cool of the evening, I soar! My baby, my first, like an angel sleeps Soft, warm and brown I stare in awe of this most perfect gift from God! Tiny almond-shaped eyes, sparkle- searching Nothing as beautiful have I ever seen! She cries and her teardrops like crystal daggers Pierce, my joyful heart! And like a wounded sparrow it plummets Free-falling, and I am left puzzled...confused Nervous, I gently hold her close to my breast I am sure she can feel my heart beating.. Suddenly our faces brush... she turns- Our eyes lock, and smiles ripple! My first born--all is well in my world.

    My first is 40 and my little girl is 26. Children are one of many blessings we see in a lifetime, probably the most precious. Vince

    Audrey, You never forget the happiness that first born infant brings into your life and it is as easy to write about when they are grown as it is when they have just arrived; there is nothing like it. Your poem conveys this beautifully! Congratulations on your poem being featured. Blessings, Connie
