Let me revel in the joy of holding you in my arms
capture that priceless euphoria in my heart.
Let me bask in admiring your innocent beauty
feeding and burping you, taking you out on a stroll,
serenading in your gurgles and toothless grins.
Let your unbridled laughter reverberate loud.
I promise to be patient, tolerating your naughty pranks
maybe, a small reprimand for a wrong you do.
I’ll be by your side when tears flow down,
tending to your bruised knees and scraped elbows.
Grow up to a life of endless possibilities.
Paint your world with colors of curiosity and imagination,
catch butterflies, climb mountains and enjoy picnics.
Together, we’ll explore the fairy tales and fantasy world.
You my little darling, are the best gift to me.
So, lets weave together beautiful memories of your childhood,
before you flap your wings and soar high into the skies.
