CHERISH THIS TIME by Joanna Fuchs - newborn babies poem





CHERISH  THIS  TIME


by  Joanna Fuchs


So your baby is here!
What joy and what pleasure!
Now your life is expanding,
To make room for this treasure.


A darling newcomer
To have and to hold--
Her (His) smiles are more precious
Than silver or gold.


She'll (He'll) demolish your schedule
Though she's helpless and small;
She'll make her needs known,
And she'll rule over all.


See, a new parent's work
Is just never quite done,
But you'll never mind,
‘Cause it's all so much fun.



When you hear her cute giggle
You'll start "aahing" and "oohing,"
And she'll soon reply back
By "ga ga" and "goo gooing."


Those big innocent eyes
See a world strange and new;
To make sense of it all
She'll look only to you.


So cherish this time
Of miraculous things
The excitement and wonder
That a new baby brings.
