Sydney Grace

Precious is a daughter, and her mother’s love.

Sheltered by her father, since the day she’d come.

All her hopes and dreams are filtered through the streams, for the pleasures yet to bring.

***

I rocked her in a cradle, in a moonlit room,

Wondering when she’s able, would she leave too soon?

Though she’s here for just a while,

She’s our joy and she’s our child. 

***

Beauty is a gem stone.  It’s a jewel within,

Shining like a light on, the humble heart who lives.

All the stepping stones are lit and paved with gold,

Every time she leaves home.

***

I rocked her in a cradle, in a moonlit room,

Wondering when she’s able, would she leave too soon?

Though she’s here for just a while,

She’s our joy and she’s our child.

***

To a brother and her sister, she’s a treasured friend.

What they’d do for one-another, there’s just no end.

She’ll be a princess in disguise, or keep a keen and watchful eye, and do it all in kind.

***

I rocked her in a cradle, in a moonlit room,

Wondering when she’s able, would she leave too soon?

Though she’s here for just a while,

She’s our joy and she’s our child.
