FOLLOWING YOUR OWN PATH By: Patricia Salamone

You were born in February in the late afternoon just as the sun was setting.

You were now on the path to your future but for now my bundle of joy.

They placed you in a bassinet, a heat lamp keeping you warm.

You placed your hands behind your head and surveyed your new world.

All were amazed at your action and snapped photos of your feat.

You were on the path to your future but for now my bundle of joy.

The first time I held you in my arms and close to my beating heart

I knew the love of a mother was instant from the start.

You had big brown eyes, long delicate fingers and dark-haired widows peek.

You had the scent of a newborn baby that made my heart fill with joy

and my eyes with tears of happiness.

You were on the road to your future but for now my bundle of joy.

As you grew, and too quickly I might add, you made us proud and

happy to be your mom and dad.

You are curious, smart and athletic with a kind and gentle heart.

With big brown eyes, long and delicate fingers and dark-haired widows peek.

You are on the path to your future but for now my bundle of joy.
