"Do what you love"

You are the center of my joy
Your little hands and feet
That squirms around every time
I hold you in my arms.
You are the center of my joy.
Your smile and glossy brown
Eyes that follow everything
That moves on the earth.
You are the center of my joy.
Your baby smell that soothes
My aching body from a
Hard days work.
Baby boy,
You are the center of my joy.

My sister has a new baby boy and the interaction between them gave me inspiration.
