The daytime sky has slowly drifted
Into the starry twilight of the night
I cannot help but smile at Heaven's perfect gift
Such an image of perfection, such a perfect little sight

My heart melts as I gaze into your face
And hold your tiny little hand
Momentarily your slumber is seemingly so undisturbed
Silently I realize your life is so much more of a bigger plan

A gentle yawn, a gentle stifle and then a stir
Precious blue eyes gaze upon my face
I want to your hold little body forever
And never let you out of my motherly embrace

Blue is the color of my tears
And the color of my aching heart
Knowing my little girl must grow up
This world will one day pull us so far apart

My eyes gaze upon your sleeping body
Hoping to capture every small breath you take
Capturing this moment forever in my mind
Knowing another fleeting moment has passed with another small ache

I gather my strength as I gently carry you away
Forever the beautiful sleeping baby in my arms
I promise I will always love you
And to protect always from harm

Blue is the color of peace and of pain
And the color of my love
The calm of moments passed and those still yet to come
Knowing how perfect of a gift you are, from heaven-sent above

The calming winds will blow, the blue waves will crash
But I want you to forever know, my love for you will forever last

I loved this poem. A parents love is so special and watching those little darlings grow does tear ones heart. Thank you.

I enjoyed reading your poem. It was well-written. I think, though, that you got the words a little tangled in one of the lines. You have, "I want to your hold little body forever." I think you meant : I want to hold your little body forever. Still, it was a wonderful poem.
