I haven't failed. I just haven't found 10,000 ways that won't work. [Thomas Edison]

When words fail, music speaks.


That plump face with podgy cheeks
That small mouth that gurgles with delight
When I speak. 

That tiny hand which grasps mine 
The other holds your favourite toy 
Which when taken from, you don't whine. 

That mouth makes all the noise
Chirps, gurgles and screams
And fills people with joy. 

That bundle of love 
So small, so sweet 
Always smiling 
And eating your feet 

You don't know it 
You're too young 
But you make me smile 
Tiny little one.

I've always loved babies and one day while out in a cafe, a baby kept staring at me. It made me smile so much and I forgot how easily babies make people happy.

You used good imagery. I liked how obvious it was that you were talking about a baby, even though you never said the word once. You did seem to talk about mouths on multiple stanzas, though.
Would you take a look at my poem in the forums under "Any Advice?" Thanks!
