Steal The Show

As I looked upon my Daughter Michaela it was clear to see Two big beautiful blue eyes were looking back at me When I got home from Prison and she was 5 days old Speaking of holding the warm after absorbing the cold The happiness of childhood was looking up to see A little bundle of love that was looking inside of me She would lie upon my chest and then she would fall out I think safety in her daddy’s arms is what that was all about She had a beautiful smile as well as a beautiful glow As I looked at every tiny finger and every little toe Then when she opened up her eyes everybody knew “Just take a look at those blue eyes she looks just like you” No ones knows where life may lead but I know in my heart Made my end then started again so this baby would have a start From the darkest night to the brightest light I can help her Soul Perhaps in the overall scheme of things that always was my goal I don’t think things are ever quite that easy, only thing I know When it comes to beautiful babies, my little girl steals the show ------------------------------------------------------------------ Written for the Beautiful Babies Contest.

You were released when she was only 5 days old??? That has to be a miracle, letting you take part in her entire life except for 5 tiny days in the beginning. Definitely a miracle in my book. Hope you win Mike -Yoni
