I wrote this poem about my niece, Stephanie when she was a baby. I wrote it through the eyes of her parents. This is one of the poems I’ve had published. I hope you like it.
MY BABY GIRL
A child so young in age
But in wisdom is growing fast.
I wish I could stop the hands of time
And keep her within my grasp.
There’s so much I’d like to teach her.
I’m sure I’ll have the time.
Down the road I’ll be proud to say,
“That little girl is mine.”
For now I watch her closely
As she slowly learns to walk.
It seems I know what she’s thinking
And yet she can barely talk.
I’ll try to teach her the best I can
To learn what’s right and wrong.
In years to come I truly hope
Her values will be strong.
In a few years she won’t be so young.
With her smile she’ll rule the world.
The men will think she’s a beauty
But she’ll still be my baby girl.
She is grown now and her smile does rule the world and she did grow into a beauty. She is also a wonderful young woman. She is a nurse in the Neonatal Unit. She is making a huge difference in the lives of those babies and their families. I am so very proud of the woman she has become and I knew then that I would be.
If you enjoy this poem, I have published a book of my poetry called, “Heart Versus Mind: Words That Touch Your Heart,” that can be found on Amazon.com or Lulu.com.
