This Little Child

This little child,
this little child that I held in my arms
lives to be fed, to be diapered and to be held.

This little child,
this little child with a heart so tender
longs only to be loved and to be blessed.

This little child,
this little child so fresh and so new
is wrapped in pink and delicate skin.

This little child,
this little child recognizes already
the touch and voice of her mother and father.

This little child,
this little child entered life
without choice, voice or will.

This little child,
this little child will learn and grow
with time, nurturing and instinct to thrive.

This little child,
this little child may she quickly
come to know that she is chosen by design.

This little child,
this little child is a gift
from the Creator to us HIS creation.

This little child,
this little child is a messenger
of hope, faith and love.

A messenger of faith, hope and love.

A messenger of faith, hope and love.
