Time Slips Through My Fingers

My Baby
(by Martha Benton)

Ten little fingers, ten little toes -
Rosy little lips, and a button nose.
So soft and cuddly with a baby sweet smell.
Eyes so full of trust that I just can't fail.

I know a gift of God you had to be -
How else could something so perfect come to me?
You wiggle and snuggle, gurgle and coo -
Do you know of all the love in my heart for you?

Your eyes are getting heavy,
as off to Dreamland you go -
To dream of teddy bears, kittens,
and your Mother's love, I know.

I hold you close, and look at you with awe-
as a little silent prayer I say --
"Thank you God, and please help me mold
this little life the right way."

I put you in your crib so gently, and
turn to blink away the tears.
You're my baby now, but I know it's
just for a few short years.

"Angel Baby"
Sung to the tune of Brahms's Lullaby
(by 'lil kathi)

Close your eyes and go to sleep,
you are tucked in so warmly.
and in your arms, a teddy bear,
who will keep you safe when I'm not there.

the silver moon and twinkling stars,
don't be afraid, I won't be far.
and if you see the monster creep,
i'll hold you till you are fast asleep.

special and different from the rest,
lies my little one in the nest.
outward reach, sometimes stumble and fall,
see, you are my baby, my doll.

hold on there, please don't cry.
yes I love you, you are mine.
now there's the smile I want to see.
that's my precious little baby.

night lights shine, the door is cracked.
should you cry, I'll be back.
fast asleep and magic dreams,
I love you, good night

"Good Morning My Baby"

by Judianna Castle

"Good morning Baby, did you sleep well?
I hope you had sweet dreams. Are you still sleepy??"

Good morning my baby Good morning to you.
I love you my baby I love you I do.

You're getting bigger with every new day,
And you're getting stronger in every way.
Good morning my baby Good morning to you.
I love you my baby I love you I do.

Good morning to the flowers and the meadows and trees.
Good morning to the bunnies and the butterflies and bees.
Good morning my baby Good morning to you.
I love you my baby I love you I do.

I am so happy that you are here.
You are so special so precious and dear.
Good morning my baby Good morning to you.
I love you my baby I love you I do.

Good morning to the sun and the clouds in the sky.
Good morning to the birds singing songs as they fly.
Good morning my baby Good morning to you.
I love you my baby I love you I do.

Good morning my baby Good morning to you.
I love you my baby I love you I do.

"You make every morning a good morning, baby.
And you make each day a very special day.
Did you know that when you smile your whole face lights up?
I am so proud of you and I'm so happy you're in my life.
Good morning my baby Good morning to you
I love you my baby I love you I do"

~Hugs and Kisses~
(by Jennifer)
I have a special hug, I'd like to give to you,
I also have some kisses, go on and take a few.
I'd love to hug you all the time until you're feeling sick,
I'll cure you with my kisses and, you'll feel better quick!
So take some hugs and kisses too,
I hope you know that I love you!

By Beldin Jr

Let me be a child again
And my adulthood leave
Let me know the simple truths
That little ones believe

Let me feel the wonder
That fills each tiny heart
And share the expectation
Their bright Childhood dreams impart

And when, too soon, the time arrives
To be myself once more
Let me remember what is was
That I was looking for

Love you Forever

by Robert Munsch

Sometimes the mother picked up her grown son,
rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.
While she rocked him she sang:
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living,
my baby you'll be.

You Are My World

by: Heather Nightingale

Dear Son, Everytime I look at you, I can't believe that I had in me all this time the power to create such a perfect child as you. As I hold you close to my heart, I pray that I will be here to see and share all your goals and accomplishments. Never before has life seemed so precious to me. I wish I could bottle this time that we share together.

As I look upon your sleeping, angelic face, I am amazed. I hold you so close that I feel your breath and I desperately hold on to this feeling. When you grow older, perhaps you won't recall how I held you every night until you fell asleep. But, my son, these precious moments I will never forget.

I know that life will hold many triumphs and trials for you. I want to be there to share in your joys and to be your shoulder when you need to cry. I feel such a fierce, overwhelming desire to protect you from all the evils of this world. Sometimes I will hold you a little too tight - forgive me, you are my world.

There are many lessons that I want to teach you. Perhaps the hardest ones will be the ones you learn yourself. I wish that I could learn them for you, for my heart aches at the thought that you may fail at some of life's bittersweet lessons. But, please know, that no matter what, you will always have my unconditional, undying love.

Even if we lived forever, I could not even begin to show you the depth of my love for you. I love you more than life itself and I would give my life for you without a seconds hesitation. Please know that you are and will always be the light of my life. You have made my life complete.

I Love You, Mommy

In the land of lullabies where children laugh and play.
You'll find a place called long ago and not so far away.
A place of happy endings and of dreams that always come true.
A place where the grass is always green and the sky is always blue.

A place of mystery and make believe, of rainbows, unicorns and doves.
But most of all this place is a place filled with love.
If you close your eyes my dears you'll see, that what I've said is true.
For if you stay young at heart, this place will forever remain in you.

Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. So one day the child asked God:

They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?

Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you.

But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile, that's enough for me to be happy.

Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's love and be happy.

And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don't know the language that men talk?

Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.

And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?

Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.

I've heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?

Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.

But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.

Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly:

Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name!

Your angel's name is of no importance, you will call your angel:

On being Young at Heart

by Daisy

Young at heart is a state of being.
It is a lifestyle. For some of us,
it is a most important thing.
It is hugging your big plushie bunny rabbit,
and say "I love you Bunny Rabbit!",
and still mean it.
It is being able to play, with simple things,
and find great fun in it.
It is about having friends, and being friends,
and sharing all our inner thoughts.
Secrets, treasures, joys and sorrows are given and accepted.
It is crying, when you hurt inside,
even if someone else thinks it's silly.
Or laughing out loud, just because you want to,
and just maybe, it's what you were crying about.
Most of all, it's about loving, each and every one like us,
for what we are, and what we can become.

The First Babe

by AngelMom

When the first babe was born,
was a mum who kept him warm,
held him in her loveing arms,
kept him safe from any harms,
feed him with her own breast,
loved him above all the rest,
holding his hand kissing his cheek,
know him so small and week,
in her eyes a merical to behold,
in her heart love untold,
a love for a babe is strongest of all,
for how could you not love one so small,

~Magic Land~

by Richie

If you would only take my hand
I could show you my magic land
A place of eternal springtime
This is someplace uniquely mine

My Mommys lap is always there
Safe and warm to banish fear
And when I fall and scrape my knee
Someone always comforts me

My teddy bear and I can play
Till darkness overtakes the day
When bedtime comes I know I'll see
A babys crib awaiting me

My Daddy pins my diaper on
I know he loves his little one
Then on his lap with Dr. Seuss
Nursery rhymes and Mother Goose

I suck my thumb and close my eyes
Daddy looks at me and smiles
Softly kissing my forehead
He gently tucks me into bed

And if I waken in the night
Cold and wet and full of fright
My Mommy is there to ease my fears
And wipe away my little tears

She brings my bottle of warm milk
And with a touch as soft as silk
My diapers changed and soon I'm dry
While Mommy hums a lullabye

My magic land I know I'll keep
As Mommy rocks me back to sleep
Now if my hand you cannot take
And my land you would forsake
Judge not so harshly such as I
For fear my magic land would die

You are an angel sent down to me from heaven above.
God's gift is your life and the depth of your unending love.
I look into your eyes and my heart begins to melt.
The greatest treasure on earth is this love I had never felt
until you beautiful child were given to me.
The years pass so quickly. Before my eyes you grow and change.
But one thing is certain. My love for you is here to stay.
For you have changed my life and your love has set me free.
Without the love of a child I felt lonely and incomplete,
But you, beautiful child, have made me complete.
Love, what awesome love, between this mother and her child.
God gave me a Glimpse of Heaven when he gave me this gift,
you beautiful child.

The Rocking Chair

The house is hushed and still. My other blessings are asleep.
You've waited all this time, now to my arms you creep.
We walk all through the house, see the remnants of the day.
We push them all aside, for, we are on our way,
To the rocking chair that's waiting in your room.
Our peaceful rocking chair where sleep will find you soon.
We cuddle with a book, I talk about our day.
We sing a little song and then a prayer we say.
We thank the Lord above for the blessings that he brings.
We thank him for this love and a list of many things.
Not least the rocking chair, our favorite place to be.
I should be feeling tired, but this is joy to me.
Looking at your face I see it must be true,
The rocking chair brings sleep and quietness to you.
For Mama it brings more, baby, someday you will know.
A place to thank the Lord for the blessings he bestows.
Our faithful rocking chair, its purpose now has served,
For, baby, you're asleep. My prayers have all been heard.

As I rock you late at night, and the moon streams softly through the shade,
I dream of you, my baby, how much you mean to me.
And when I close my eyes, I can't believe you're real.
I touch you just to see how beautiful you feel.
I dream of you, my baby.
As I hold you in my arms, scarce can breathe for fear you will be gone,
I dream of you, my baby, and how our lives will be.
I kiss your baby lips, the sweetest ever known,
I hold your baby hand, so soon you will be grown.
I dream of you, my baby.
My baby.

Time Slips Through My Fingers

I peek into your room and see you quiet and still.
The days are flying past, I can't stop them with my will.
I know I cannot keep you the way I see you now.
So precious and so tiny, so innocent somehow.
So brief you are my baby, so quickly you will part.
But I will keep your baby ways engraved upon my heart.
So sleep, my precious child. Dream of life that's filled with charms,
As time slips through my fingers and you slip through my arms.
Yes, sleep my precious child, but soon when you are grown,
Remember how I loved you more than you had known.
And remember how I held you, how I watched you day and night.
And remember how you loved me too.
Please always love me, I'll always love you.
So sleep, my precious child. Dream of life that's filled with charms,
As time slips through my fingers and you slip through my arms.
Yes, sleep my precious child, Dream of life that's filled with charms,
As time slips through my fingers, and you slip through my arms.
