To My Future Baby

Poetry By: mar1e

I had been married for almost 10yrs, with no children. (Now into a divorce). Anyway... this piece is written to my future baby, and how I might feel when I have her (or him) for the 1st time, after waiting far too long!

Baby girl, you do not know how I have longed for you
As I look at you, the hard wait was worth it after all
A once shaky faith awhile back is now renewed
Though hope was there all along; and it never did fall

Those virtuous thoughts of the Creator,
presenting me with, 'the gift of birth' was far from reach
Although my love for Him had not or ever will falter
For what lies before me right here, is a baby to teach

Baby girl, so fragile I do not wish to break you!
When you gurgle a tiny sound, my tears again come pouring
Here is my pact with you now, "That I will always come through!"
If God is for me, you and I will move on up, then soaring

How do I express this, as words cannot begin to form,
while I cannot believe this glorious thing is lying next to me
So many questions are evolving, like a brewing storm
The most important of all is, "Will my baby be happy?"

Baby girl, people say that motherhood is a beautiful thing
Some say it is a task while others skip happily through it
All I know is what I have here (finally), not what it will bring
And you told me from the time you smiled, that I was...
already a hit!
