My Nephew

As the birth of my nephew is just any day I am getting
super excited!!! A new life, precious to God.

May his life be filled with love, hope, dreams.

A Newborn Child

A newborn child with eyes so bright
You fill the world with much delight
Your heart is kind; your smile is sweet
You are a joy to those you meet
Formed in the palm of God’s own hand
Your destiny appears quite grand
Although, your path is just begun
Your future shines, just like the sun.

As moments pass, your soul will grow
To learn things that you did not know
You’ll rise above; you’ll make mistakes
You’ll fall in love; your heart will break
Yet, through it all, you will remain
A link within your family’s chain
Whose bond shall strengthen over time
Despite the mountains you must climb.

A newborn child with eyes so bright
You are, indeed, a wondrous sight
Your skin is soft; your features small
But, you are loved by one and all
I know tears fell from cherubs’ eyes
As they embraced you with goodbyes
Before you flew from high above
To grace us with God’s gift of love.
