and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
The instant you were born, my whole world changed
nothing was more important to me than you,
plans for future happiness got prioritized and rearranged.
I picked you up and gently rocked you in my arms
fragile, weak, and defenseless
you won my heart with your baby charms.
Helpless and dependent on mom and me for your care
I assured you with a whisper,
that mommy and daddy would always be there.
As feelings for your mother and you combine
you both become the focus of my life
as I gaze into your eyes, and you stare into mine.
I fell in love for the second time in my life
although I never thought it possible
to love anyone as much as I love my wife.
You count on us to protect you
and we'll never let you down,
there's nothing we wouldn't do.
You inherited your mom's sweet smile
and your bright blue eyes came from me,
but you brought your own unique style.
From your crinkly nose to your wiggly toes
sweetheart, you're the answer to our prayers
and amidst the thorns of life, baby, you're the rose.
