A sleeping baby, silent, sweet
Eyes, fluttering with dreams, a smile
ever so lightly on those lips
And a million hearts she wins in style…
With gurgling sounds, and curling locks
a bashful glance, and rosy cheeks
Like a cute little doll, right out of the box
That smile, it stays for weeks and weeks
What magic wove, that God above
and filled little babies with so much love
Those little fists, that grab at our hearts
And yet they break it into a million parts
When they grow up soon, and time doth fly
And when asked to smile, they ask why?
But in our mind’s eye, they’ll always be
That effortlessly charming little baby….
