ODE TO THE UNBORN CHILD

TO YOU LITTLE ONE

WE LEAVE THIS WORLD

IMPERFECT IT IS

BUT HOPELESS IT’S NOT.

YOU ARE THE FUTURE

THE BRIGHT LIGHT OF HOPE.

MAY YOUR EYES BE WIDE

WITH WONDER

THAT YOU NEVER LOSE.

MAY YOUR HEART BE OPEN

AND FORGIVING.

WE WANTED IT ALL

FOR OURSELVES AND FOR YOU.

WE WERE WRONG.

WITH TIME, PERHAPS,

YOU CAN BETTER THIS WORLD.

OUR LEGACY TO YOU.

MAY YOUR SMILE

NEVER DARKEN

AND TEARS BE ONLY OF JOY.

YOU ARE SO TINY,

NOT YET OF THIS WORLD,

BUT STILL YOU ARE HERE

YOUR PRESENCE IS FELT.

ONE DAY THIS WORLD WILL BE YOURS,

TREAT IT WITH CARE.

BE A PARTNER

AND REACH FOR THE STARS.

YOU CAN BE

ALL THAT YOU WILL

THE POWER IS YOURS.

TO YOU LITTLE ONE

I SALUTE

AND AWAIT YOUR ARRIVAL

HALE AND HEARTY.
