Very sweet and heartfelt poem.
The poem shows love and tenderness...very thoughtful writing.
A beautiful poem. It stands well on its own without introduction.

I wish everyone felt as you do, that every newborn is precious.

I like your thought about "listening eyes" and these lines are really good. "Your lives will start to intertwine, And form a two-fold strand" Precious thoughts here!
This is just wonderful. I could picture the look of utter trust mingled with curiousity, awe and wonder at this being, the parent, their whole world. To betray and sever that precious strand is unthinkable.
