Holding her in my arms,
So innocent and sweet,
Her bright blue eyes stare at me.

My eyes are hopeful
Because in hers, I see
the wonderment of life.

Her rosy cheeks hold fullness,
Her pink toothless gums whisper dreams
and her little goo giggles soften the world’s worries.

I do not know how such a little person,
weighing 14 pounds, 7 ounces,
can have such a huge influence on me,

But she does.

I am in love with this tiny bundle of joy,

And she is,
my daughter.


The author's comments:
I am a teen mother.My daughter is the most important thing in my life and I would really love for her to be able to look back one day and see this poem I wrote about her and know that I do love her and she was not planned but I love her and I would not go back and change anything.

It amazes me to know that someone so young can try so hard and do a wonderful job raising her daughter and having the feelings that you do for her!  I am totally proud of you!!!!

It is not often that a young woman can find this depth of love in their heart for an unplanned child.  God bless you
