Meeting Amelia


Meeting Amelia

It is such a thrill to meet you,
to see the wonder in your bright eyes,
like your Daddy's--soft cornflower blue.

Tiny wisps of red hair escape the hospital hat,
striped in white and blue and pink.
I have a granddaughter...imagine that!

This is a sacred moment for me, to hold you now.
You, cooing and content, wrapped in a blanket like a burrito.
Me, overwhelmed with delight, sighing a whispered, "Wow."

  9. Oh dear Connie I started crying while looking at this PRECIOUS LITTLE ANGEL
    And reading along these heart warming beautiful beautiful poetry!!!

    Hubby sitting near me on sofa turned his head and asked "are you crying "

    What a GLORIOUS MAGICAL experience you had!
    I absolutely LOVED the all images of happy parents and the treasure in their arms!

    May you see her growing old with health and pleasure each step my friend!

  10. We think nothing can possibly be more magical than the feeling we have when holding our newborn baby in our arms for the first time... and then we hold our new grandchild for the first time. There's nothing like it. Congratulations, dear lady. I'm so happy for you.
