A Year Ago

A year ago, 8 pounds of delight arrived
Wrapped with innocence, she made us feel alive
Bundled with pure smile, she marked a beginning
Of new inspiration, purpose and meaning

A year ago, a present came from above
A 20 inch gift swaddled with joy and love
A blessing that will forever be treasured
A real happiness that cannot be measured

A year ago, Alisha Nini was born
My life’s been better, it will never be scorned
Our baby, you always make things beautiful
And to God, I’ll be eternally grateful

Letter To The Extension Of My Soul

Since you’ve come, my world has found a different meaning
A beautiful, amazing new life is unfolding
It’s divine! The epitome of inspiration
This is for the love that defies all my confusion

Every time you smile or laugh, you melt my heart and all
Then the time I heard you cry, my tears can’t stop to fall
So I promise to take care of you ’til you say never
This is for the love I vow to be with forever

So thank you, baby, you are a gift, a rare blessing
You are the only one who fills my every longing
I am now complete. With you, I am finally whole
This is for the love that’s an extension of my soul

I Never Imagine

Capture

I never imagine
A bond could be so strong
A love happening in an instant
Just finding out about you
Not even seeing you in person
But just knowing you are here
Breathing, growing with me
You are a miracle, a blessing

I never imagine
That time can actually pause
That Earth can stop from spinning –
That was when we finally saw
A small glimpse of you
Your tiny heart beating fast
The focus was on you
Only you, our little one

I never imagine
I could be this person
A whole new different me –
I must confess, it feels odd
Yet it feels wonderful
Knowing there could be a future
With you, the three of us
Growing together, embracing this life

I never ever imagine
We could bring a new life to this world…
