The Gift of Life

The Gift

by Deborah A. Bowman

LOVE is felt in hugs, cuddles, and touch

The warmth and security of loving arms mean so much!

PEACE is found in the silence between breaths

As the baby’s head drifts down to rest.

JOY is shared with that first little smile

Thrilling the hearts of both parent and child.

WISDOM is in knowing when to play, laugh, cry, or eat

Or just be calm, still, quiet, and sleep.

PURITY is innocence in all its simplicity

When little eyes widen and glow with wonder and humility!
