What a Baby Costs

For babies people have to pay
A heavy price from day to day –
There is no way to get one cheap

Why, sometimes when they’re fast asleep
You have to get up in the night
And go and see that they’re alright.

But what they cost in constant care
And worry, does not half compare
With what they bring of joy and bliss –

You’d pay much more for just a kiss.

Edgar Guest (1881-1959)

I Am Not Alone

“I Am Not Alone”

Running errands and talking on the phone,
I am pleasantly reminded that I am not alone.
Little tiny hands, a precious rounded knee,
pushing and twisting that no one can see.
Oh sweet child kicking up your heels,
it is our little secret that only I can feel.
I look forward to your birth,
when I can kiss your skin,
but for now I will just smile,
as I feel you play within.
