New and Old and Sweet

babypearssoap

Baby dear, from baby dear,

Slow life down to focus here,

The sound of little voices ring clear,

And tiny fingers cling.

~~~~~~

Let go of other things,

Schedules and worries that sting,

Disappointments and endless wondering,

So sing, and soothe, the baby to hold.

~~~~~~~

With the child you’re never old,

Your smile is big and your laugh is bold,

Old stories translated and newly told,

Bring joy and love and trust.
