A Poem For Baby

27 Aug

I would like to share a beautiful poem my mother-in-law wrote for our baby.  The photo is of the card she put the poem in.  Perfect, right?

My precious little grandbaby,

My prayers they support your life.

I know not what you will look like,

Or with what you’ve had to strive.

Your months on earth have been but few,

Your little mind feels unsure.

You hunger for a touch that shouts,

“You belong and are secure!”

Your God Who formed you so complete,

Has never once left your side.

The fierceness of His love for you,

Is where you can always hide.

You’ll come to live with parents strong,

Who desire to see your face.

They’ve prayed and worked with endless toil

To prepare for you your place.

You’ll love them quickly, you will see,

They’re perfectly matched for you.

You’ll grow secure within their care,

With love they will see you through.

My precious little grandbaby,

For you I will always pray.

Come speedily sweet gift from God,

With us come and live your days!
