First Cuddle

Dearest child,
I finally have the chance to hold you,
To give you love I've been given
And to mold you,
To sing you songs that calm your fears
That testify to love.
To give you songs from ancient years,
The promise from above.

Little boy, you won't know all
The gifts that you've been given,
But they'll be with you, by God's grace,
The providence of heaven.

And so now, peace.  Peace.

Thanks all. To be a father is... well, it's a lot more than I know just now. I feel blessed to have a wonderful wife to journey alongside and a good and gracious God to serve.
