Just five short years ago
You came into our world
Boy, so precious, perfect
Little Nicolas, miracle

I knew that very moment
The very day that you were born
This was love in new dimension
Like Iíd never known before

Smart and sweet youíve grown to be
Cute, curious, rambunctious
Finding puddles great to splash in
And bugs are good to scare us

Funny little nephew
Never know what you will do
A surprise the day you told us
We were old and you were new

Your precious little world of home
Mom and dad and neighbor friends
Soccer games and bicycle rides
Sister Abi, Brother Ben

Explorer, athlete, pirate king
We often wonder what youíll be
A fireman like daddy
Or a writer just like me

Friends and fellow pirate kings
Wonders just like you
I wonder how many of them were lost
Inside their motherís womb

What a loss of Godís creation
Defying any explanation
What a joy those mothers missed
A blessing like our Nicolas

Just five short years ago
More loved with every year
Little nephew Nicolas
Iím so glad youíre here

How prescious is our little ones and how wonderful is the Lord who gives us the gift of children, for a short time to exude His character in us. What a blessing!Sounds like Nicholas is quite the cutie and well loved. We have 3 children and the youngest is 6 and full of energy and curiousity. Keep on writing hon! God bless!

I enjoyed your poem so much. It sounded like something my daughter might write about one of her nephews or nieces. Keep on writing.
