Blessings to you little one
Soon you’ll feel the warmth of sun
The kiss of sun fairies on your skin
A tickle of wind as you breathe in
Loving arms will hold you in embrace
The outside world is a lovely place
The heavenly sphere, the starry dome
Was once upon a time your home
For now you rest snug in mama’s womb
A time to grow, a time to bloom.
From heavens through water, and soon to Earth
You chose your family, you’ll choose your birth.
Your loved ones are gathering, all are here
To celebrate the day you appear.
Blessings on you little one
Soon you’ll feel the warmth of sun.

Originally written for the birth of Jaiah Hazel, but is a blessing for all babies about to come earth-side, including my own who should appear in about a month. Image is of my own little Rosella, two weeks old 🙂
