For baby Hannah

By panda_eyed
I have a few posts to blog, with pictures, but today, I think the birth of little Hannah takes precedence. Congrats to Mylozmom and hubby on their new little girl!

After looking at Flighty's blog, and the lovely poem he posted for Hannah, I was reminded of a poem I wrote a good few years ago. It would have been appropriate had I posted it before the birth, but nevermind, today I dedicate this to little Hannah:

Little bundle

Warm, cosy, muffled sounds
Soft walls, completely surround
This snug little place is your protection
’Til you’re ready to proceed in our direction

I am your cocoon while you grow
Providing shelter and warmth ‘til you’re ready to show
Inside my body, you lay in a curl
I’m proud to be your vessel into this world
I imagine your features, perfectly formed
I’m your safety, keeping you warm

Into my life, you were injected
Better than anything ever expected
But little bundle of cells, you’re my bundle of joy
Can’t wait ‘til you become a little girl or a boy
I can hear your heart beat, fast yet steady
I have begun to love you already
You’re a miracle from heaven that’s been sent down to me
I promise to protect, cherish, and love you for eternity

    Gosh, you were so young when you wrote this, how did you get it right?

    Hi YummyMummy, thank you! I do hope MM likes it! :)

    Thanks Nikki, it's silly stuff really *blushes*

    Livvy, between the ages of 18-20, I wrote a lot of stuff, but not all of it great. I haven't written a thing in years, I don't know where it all disappeared to.

    Hey new mummy! I'm glad you liked it, and I'm proud to be included in Hannah's album, thanks!
    And it's perfectly understandable that you're busy nowadays, don't apologise! I hope all is well, and I send you and Hannah plenty of warm huggles!
