To Celebrate the Birth of You


You were floating in her womb

So soft and pink as a cocoon

And in that not so long ago

The very one that I love so

Came forth to see his Mother’s eyes

For she had carried Gemini

Nine long months and longed to hold

Him in her arms and gently fold

Her fingers ‘round his tender arms

To count his toes and feel the charms

Babies bring when they’re brand new

Yet little did she know that you

And I would meet one special day

And I would love you in a way

That seems to be far greater still

Because I’ve ached and longed to feel

The touch of you much longer dear

So long that I am filled with tears

And wonder if there’ll ever be

A day when you and I can see

The candles on your cake so bright

When I can kiss your lips goodnight

After we’ve danced the nighttime through

To celebrate the birth of you
