Where did you come from baby dear?

Where did you come from Baby dear?
Out of the everywhere into here.

Where did you get your eyes so blue?
Out of the sky as i came through.

What makes the light in them sparkle and spin?
Some of the starry spikes left in.

Where did you get that little tear?
I found it waiting when i got here.

What makes your forehead so smooth and high
A soft hand stroked it as i went by

What makes your cheek like a warm white rose?
I saw something better than anyone knows.

Whence that three cornere'd smile of bliss?
Three angels gave me at once a kiss.

Where did you get those pearly ear?
God spoke, and it came out to hear.

Where did you get those arms and hands?
Love made itself into hooks and bands.

Feet, whence did you come you darling things?
From the same box as the cherub's wings.

How did you all just came to be you?
God thought of me and so i grew.

But how did you come to us my dear?
God thought of you, and so I am here.

Even though i was past five months into my pregnancy
not until the moment i read this poem, did i realise how blessed i was to
have my baby. Tears streaming down my cheeks i walked out of the bookstore
with the poem collection held tightly as if she was right there in my arms.

My darling is almost 18 months old now.

here is her foto
PS: Boy, she's growing up fast.
