New: a poem for my daughter

Everything is new for you

Beautiful you

Every breath, every sight

An experience, a delight

In a world yet undiscovered

Full of promise

Full of light and hope and joy

Infinite possibilities

For a life so new.

Everything is new for me

Since you, beautiful you

Came along

Every movement, every sound

A wonder, a delight

In a world now perfect

Since you, beautiful you

Came along.


Delighted to be linking up for the first time with ‘The Prompt‘; a source of inspiration for the written word

  1. Oh, I love this. I’m sitting here with a huge smile on my face! The words are just perfect, and I honestly couldn’t stop the smile spreading as I read them. Really beautiful, you’ve captured that sense of newness, for both of you, so well. Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt, wonderful to have you xx


  2. This is gorgeous – seeing the world as new through out children’s eyes is one of the most beautiful things about parenthood and your poem captures that so perfectly. Love it 🙂


  3. This is so beautiful, what lovely words for your daughter. A gorgeous photo too, full of love. I run a poetry linky every Thursday called Prose for Thought if you are ever interested (no pressure though!). #ThePrompt x
