This poem was read at my son's Christening on the day of my 30th birthday. I dedicated it to my wife and to my mother. I wrote the words to say thank you. From both of us.

Baby's Words

Although I am small and cannot say a word
these thoughts of my family I wish could be heard . . .
I feel all your love and the kind things you do.
I get so excited that I smile and coo.
A soapy warm bath or the comb through my hair
all your soft whispers that tell me you care.
Then wrapped in your arms it is safe and secure
protected with tenderness that is perfect and pure.
And if ever I'm messy, hungry, or cold
with just a small whimper I'm quickly consoled.
You kiss and caress to stop me from weeping
then patiently wait 'til I'm comfortably sleeping.
You make my life joyous, full of colors and fun
when I see you each morning your face is my sun.
So, if you aren't certain your gestures are felt
look deep in my eyes and I'm sure you will melt.
They say I'll grow fast like the blink of an eye
but do not be sad at the time that goes by.
Because I'll remember all you've given and shared
to get me through life completely prepared.
I'll be the great one who stands out in the crowd
your hearts will be happy I'll make you so proud.
I thank you so much for all that you do
and never forget that I love you, too.

I am a mother of five young children. I just love babies and this poem brought back wonderful memories of looking into my babies' eyes. Very nice.

This is a lovely poem! I was looking for a poem for my future daughter-in-law. My son and her have a child that will 10 months old soon. It is his first Christmas, and I am making a gift for Mom & Dad (with handprints/footprints). I think it will be a treasure for them to have. I already had Dad's poem and was looking for mom's tonite. This really touched my heart, and I'm about 90% sure this is the one I'm going to use. GREAT JOB to the writer!

Kendra
This poem really touches my heart. My soon to be husband has a little girl about eighteen months old and sometimes i do feel like she wont ever know how much i love her and how much i was there for her when she was born and how much i wish i could see her right now. I miss and love her with all my hearts content. And I hope that one day she would know just how much i love her and that i'll always be there for her. This poem brings me hope that maybe someday she will know that.

This is a beautiful poem - it sincerely pulled at my heart strings! My son is just two years old and at times can be quite exhausting and frustrating. These words remind me that he is just a baby, doesn't intend to be naughty and, most importantly, loves me. I will keep a copy of this in my filofax and next time I'm tired af ter a sleepless night, I shall read it again. Thank you.
