Precious Boy

Little-Boys_bkgrd

Precious little fingers,

Ten little toes,

Bright eyes and wrinkled up nose.

So alert and aware,

Little expressions light up the room,

And fill our world with bright sunshine.

Little one so perfect,

Little angel sent from Heaven above;

We promise to love you and be grateful…

Every little smeared fingerprint,

Every artistic  piece overrunning it’s page,

Every sleepless night,

And every accomplishment big or small.

We know time will fly;

All too soon you will begin to crawl,

Then you will grow to be so tall.

Our beautiful little boy,

Precious little fingers,

Ten little toes,

Bright eyes and wrinkled up nose.

We love you.

Bittersweet

bittersweet-blog-post_chris-leeA sweet call —

It’s hope, life, and beginnings.

My heart sings joyously,

In a moment it cries.

I am excited to see a new bundle of life,

But my heart holds a memory and a dream.

So much I want to share,

To see the smile I know you’d have.

A sweet call —

It’s hopes, life, and beginnings.

But reminds me so delicately,

Of the difference in the way we must share our joys;

Excitement with bittersweet tears.
