Day Old Child

I love this poem.  Babies bring such a neat feeling and spirit into your home because they are so fresh from Heaven!

Day Old Child
By Carol Lynn Pearson

My day-old child lay in my arms.
With my lips against his ear
I whispered strongly, “How I wish-
I wish that you could hear;
I’ve a hundred wonderful things to say
(A tiny cough and a nod)
Hurry, hurry, hurry and grow
So I can tell you about God.”

My day-old baby’s mouth was still
And my words only tickled his ear.
But a kind of a light passed through his eyes,
And I saw this thought appear:

“How I wish I had a voice and words;
I’ve a hundred things to say.
Before I forget I’d tell you of God-
I left Him yesterday.”

Here are my day old children:
