The Gift of You

A Poem

The Gift of You


I could watch you play forever.

Stare at you as you dream.

Listen to you cry always…

You are everything.


I hold your tiny hand in mine…

Lay your head against my chest.

Life is beautiful in so many ways…

But Precious you’re the best.


I’ve never seen such wonder.

A fairytale of true.

A miracle in my life…

The Gift of You.


Your soft sweet voice to my ear…

It slowly melts my heart.

I watch your fiery temper…

And it makes me laugh.


Because you’re already…

So much like your Mum.

Already perfect and amazing…

Your life has just begun.


I’ve never seen such wonder.

A fairytale of true.

A miracle in my life…

The Gift of You.


Every night when I carry you to bed…

I thank God you’re in my life.

And feel the pride of a king…

To know part of me produced your life.


I’ve never seen such wonder.

A fairytale of true.

A miracle in my life…

The Gift of You.

I have been writing Poetry since I was a teenager. Now in my late thirties I enjoy it more than ever. I find it a wonderful release and it helps me to free my mind and understand myself and my emotions.
