You came early
in a flurry
Cars breaking down and swapping around
Your dad out playing pool with Uncle, late
But you couldn’t wait!
You were ready
even if it felt like no one else was
but really –
it was the perfect time
You were 8 pounds after all
Your Mama had a great birth
Your brother was having a birthday too
ready to share it with you
Welcome to this family!
We are so happy you are here
with thick dark hair and baby sounds
With your wrinkled forehead and serious look
There is a lot of life going on
and we are glad you are here to share it.
