A Gift that says "I Love You"
I know I'm biased but what better way can there be to say "I love you" than with A Gift of Poetry? Truly romantic! This is just one example of what can be achieved, written from the new born baby to her Dad.
(Robyn has kindly given her permission for the poem
and story to be published)
Hello - I Love You Dad
What is your name? Robyn
Do you have any funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments that you would like to share? Jerry has been anxiously awaiting the impending birth of the baby. He is always asking me if I'm going into labor. Every time that I have any discomfort, he is ready to jump, as if it is the "real thing." During my pregnancy, our little girl has decided to make me a "liar." Every time that I tell him that the baby is moving, so that he can feel, she stops. He teases me that maybe I'm not really pregnant- maybe I've just been eating too much! When we went to our birthing classes, Jerry was so attentive. He remembered more from them than I did! He made me so proud, because I knew that he had been so attentive because he is so excited!

Hello my wonderful father,
these words are just for you,
because I'm proud of who you are
and I'm very proud of what you do.
I also know that you're proud of me,
even more so since I've learned to write,
it was quite difficult scribbling in there,
I wish someone could have turned on the light.
But seriously, I did just want to say "Hello",
it feels good to have finally landed on planet Earth,
and I already know just how lucky I am,
and what a father's love is really worth.
Mom also loves you very much,
I can feel her love for you deep inside,
and I couldn't have picked finer parents,
I couldn't - even if I'd tried.
She knows that you'll be a wonderful father,
because you're already a wonderful husband and friend,
and Mom's excited to be sharing this journey with you
and parenthood is a journey with simply no end.
We both know you're so hard working,
and you'll do everything to make sure we're cared for,
we know you're concerned about being a good father,
don't worry, that's something that'll be with you for evermore!
I know you were anxiously awaiting my arrival,
and you just couldn't wait for the time to come,
so, congratulations, you're now officially a father
(and thanks for holding the hand of my mom).
I'm sorry that I made mom a "liar",
it's just a silly little game that I used to play,
I start moving and then stopped when you felt,
please forgive me, I didn't have much to do all day!
And thankfully, I was not just a bad case of wind,
I will bring you more joy than any summer breeze,
and I think it runs in the family,
because we both like a little tease.
And you did very well in the birthing classes,
actually, you did us both proud,
and you didn't forget to tell mom to breathe properly
but at times, you did have to shout rather loud.
You and Mom are so very happy,
and everything you touch seems to turn to gold,
you don't take things for granted,
so there'll be many more golden stories to be told.
Because together we will share our futures,
and together, we will be one small happy family,
just know that I love my parents very much,
and you both mean the very world to me.
It's so nice to see your proud, smiling faces,
and I'm sorry Dad for making you wait,
just know that I'm proud of you both,
oh yes, there's one other thing I'd like to state.
No baby has ever felt this much love,
and if they have, they were very loved indeed,
and I know I couldn't have nicer parents,
so now, please don't forget my two a.m. feed!

(We changed the
perspective in this second draft......).
I know you were
anxiously awaiting my arrival,
want to thank you for all of the love and support you have given me over the
years. There is nobody else in this whole world that I would want beside me as I
enter this new phase of my life. I love you more than words can say.
