poetry for the little one

Haven't written any poetry in sooo long... probably more than 2 yrs now... and today, w/ words on my mind, I decided to take the plunge... to put the words on paper to see where my pen would lead me....

and this is what came out of it.

It's simple... but it's the first time, since Naief was born, that I've been able to put my feelings into actual words and onto paper....

so thought I'd share. :)


Sparkling, ever so brightly

deep into my soul


chocolate brown eyes

Convey innocence, so lovely

So pure

Your giggles, your squeals

The smile that turns my


upside down

Just delighted

by the being

of you

As the gentleness

of your tiny fingers

quietly discover your world

I am

Christened by the heavens

Cleansed by your love


a ray of sunshine

with every new morn’

A precious gift

My life, my love,

My little boy

That's lovely and gentle. The relationship between you two is gorgeous. Wait until he's a teenager ha ha!

wendy, ahhh :) we have our days... and yes, i can only imagine what it'll be like when he's a teenager! :) altho, hubby says that boys are harder when they're young and easier when they're older... whereas girls are more difficult when they're older. so we shall see... what do you think??

chief rock chef, you're nice... but i know i'll never make a living from writing! especially poetry!! :) but thanks!

moody, this morning i looked at his little picture on the fridge from when he was two months old.. and i had the same comment inside as you made here. :)

It's so great that you penned a verse for your son. Good timing in that Thursday was National Poetry Day in the UK ;)
