About the Poem

This poem was read at my son's Christening on the day of my 30th birthday. I dedicated it to my wife and to my mother. I wrote the words to say thank you. From both of us.

Baby's Words

Although I am small and cannot say a word
these thoughts of my family I wish could be heard . . .
I feel all your love and the kind things you do.
I get so excited that I smile and coo.
A soapy warm bath or the comb through my hair
all your soft whispers that tell me you care.
Then wrapped in your arms it is safe and secure
protected with tenderness that is perfect and pure.
And if ever I'm messy, hungry, or cold
with just a small whimper I'm quickly consoled.
You kiss and caress to stop me from weeping
then patiently wait 'til I'm comfortably sleeping.
You make my life joyous, full of colors and fun
when I see you each morning your face is my sun.
So, if you aren't certain your gestures are felt
look deep in my eyes and I'm sure you will melt.
They say I'll grow fast like the blink of an eye
but do not be sad at the time that goes by.
Because I'll remember all you've given and shared
to get me through life completely prepared.
I'll be the great one who stands out in the crowd
your hearts will be happy I'll make you so proud.
I thank you so much for all that you do
and never forget that I love you, too.

Beautiful. had me in tears.
Such a sweet poem, and very well written. It flows nicely!
What a lovely poem. I will read this out at my granddaughters christening tomorrow, if I can keep a dry eye! Thank you
I read this poem at my own daughters christening, the words were most beautiful and touched all our hearts. Thank you
I am a mother of five young children. I just love babies and this poem brought back wonderful memories of looking into my babies' eyes. Very nice.
This is a lovely poem! I was looking for a poem for my future daughter-in-law. My son and her have a child that will 10 months old soon. It is his first Christmas, and I am making a gift for Mom & Dad (with handprints/footprints). I think it will be a treasure for them to have. I already had Dad's poem and was looking for mom's tonite. This really touched my heart, and I'm about 90% sure this is the one I'm going to use. GREAT JOB to the writer!
i have two boys a one yr old and a 3 month old and your poem was perfect
We were looking for readings to have at our daughter's naming ceremony! This is a lovely poem, just what we were looking for! Thank you so much, this will make our day more special!

This was a very touching poem. thank you
Loved the poem, great perspective and not gushy. Thanks
This poem really touches my heart. My soon to be husband has a little girl about eighteen months old and sometimes i do feel like she wont ever know how much i love her and how much i was there for her when she was born and how much i wish i could see her right now. I miss and love her with all my hearts content. And I hope that one day she would know just how much i love her and that i'll always be there for her. This poem brings me hope that maybe someday she will know that.

Here I am, bawling my eyes out after reading this poem. Im currently 28+ weeks pregnant with a little girl after 4 miscarriages and a stillbirth at 36 weeks. This poem gives me hope that things will be okay. :) Thank you so much for writing it.
I absolutely adore your poem, it is beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. I am soon to be a godparent for my friends little girl and, with your permission, would love to be able to read your poem as part of the christening service.
This is absolutely beautiful!
This is a beautiful poem - it sincerely pulled at my heart strings! My son is just two years old and at times can be quite exhausting and frustrating. These words remind me that he is just a baby, doesn't intend to be naughty and, most importantly, loves me. I will keep a copy of this in my filofax and next time I'm tired af ter a sleepless night, I shall read it again. Thank you.

Thanks for the beautiful poem..I'm going to attach this to my newborn grandchilds photo this Xmas..
I really thought this poem expressed the author's thoughts very well. It flowed well and was thought-provoking as well.
I sit here with watery eyes and goosebumps on my skin, I have never read such a beautiful, wonderful poem. What a gifted man this Mr. Greg. I can only imagine the reaction by his family apon hearing it. I have two children, and only wish I could have thought of those words myself. :)
you're a good father , also be a good son , too. :)
I love this poem. I was looking for a poem that I could add to a card to give to my Mom from my 9 month old daughter, my Mom takes care of her everyday while I work, and I couldn't find a poem that fit perfectly. Well this one made me cry!!!! It fits perfect. I love it. Sara (Morgan's Mommy)
i absolutley loved this poem. It made me cry and that is hard to do. I am going to have this peom read at my sons baptizem. Thank you for righting the words that i could not say. It is so hard to express the love you feel for your children. Perfect job. Thank you
a wonderful poem
Loved the way you put yourself in the baby's emotional position. I will also use this beautiful poem in a baptismal card. Thank you and don't worry your name will be there.
VERY touching!
A beautiful poem!
Beautiful and very moving!
Brilliant. Just sums up how I feel about my baby.
That was very touchy. I loved it! Knowing what to say for a child and understanding what they're going through especially from a man is something else to me. Not many males can understand a child. I know you'll be one of the best fathers around.
Brought tears to my eyes - beautiful.
Excellent poem I wrote it in my new sons baby book
I love this poem it couldn't be better.
It brought tears to my eyes!
