Sweet Poem for New Parents

By Michele Meleen

No amount of planning
could prepare us
to see your face,
to feel so full of grace,
too long for your embrace.

Thanks to your sweet smile
we can end our dream's race
because you are our happy place.

A Parent's Love

By Michele Meleen

Like the sky above
steadfast, forever you see
parent's love, baby.

From Daddy

By Michele Meleen

You give me superhuman strength
and enough love to save the world.

My precious baby you have turned
me into your personal superhero.

Whenever you cry
I'll jump, I'll fly,
I'll run, I'll teleport
to get to you
and stop your cry
with Daddy's super love.

From Mommy

By Michele Meleen

I've known you now for nine long months
never able to see or hold you.
This moment is more fulfilling
than even I ever knew.
My newborn love I get to hold
and show what your Mommy can do.

The Funny Thing About Newborns

By Michele Meleen

The funny thing about newborns
is they're like terrible little thieves.
They steal your thoughts
and steal your mind
then steal your heart.
But, instead of keeping it
all for themselves
They give you back
more than they stole.

Dear Baby
Grace us with your smile.
Ignite our lives with fun.
Raise our spirits high.
Love us with all your might.

To Our New Baby Boy

Here's to you,
our baby boy!
Five reasons
we love you:

  1. You waited patiently then came into the world with grace and style.
  2. No scream came from your lips, but you gave Mom a smile.
  3. At Dad's soft touch you closed your eyes in peace.
  4. Resting in our arms slept soundly.
  5. Together we make the perfect family.

My Baby, You Are an Inspiration

By Michele Meleen

The journey was long
you were patient and serene
my inspiration.

Wishes for My Newborn

By Michele Meleen

If a genie granted me
three wishes, Wow!
I'd ask for him
to give my baby now:
The feeling of infinite love
The knowledge of a parent's role
and a life that always feels whole.
