Towards an official day

Precious new member of humanity

flesh flower about to grow in earth's garden

lullabied into every slumber with soft songs and sighs

wondering how that little yet fully unwrapped mind

will go about life composing. 

 

Soon to disown namelessness and disrobe swaddling attire

pretty passenger alighting from the wombs nine months journeying carriage

unlocking existences door.

I shall small word and rhyme you on your way

lovingly kissing open every waking

motherly exorcising all that quivers those softest of lips.

 

And tomorrow, a font-water moistened priestly hand

will in a tiny brow touch, cross sign who you are about to become

releasing that fledgeling name forever

into the air and hearts of all, who Amen repeating

will set their endless undying love

on the same yearly path as yours.
