I am looking for a poem to give to my youngest daughter who is expecting her first baby on July 24th. I gave a poem to my oldest daughter for the birth of her first child, but can't seem to find a good one this time around. I would like for it to be a sentimental mother-to-daughter one if possible! I have written poems before, but it was a long time ago and my brain just can't seem to come up with anything good. Help!!!

That is a really sweet idea. Are you looking for a long poem or a short one? Do you have anything specific you want in the poem?

The one that I gave to my other daughter fit on an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper that I framed for her. Just something about it being her turn to be a mother, how time has passed so quickly...you know - just the typical mushy stuff!

Oh my...I have searched and searched, you are right it isnt easy to find a poem about that. You would think there would be millions of poems about it. I think I am going to give writing one a try, can't be that hard to write (maybe).

i found some Awaiting Little You Sherri L. Sides Coming into my world, is what I long await Nine months have passed so slowly, giving you and me time to relate. Your arrival will give wings to us, changing couple to sweet family, Bonding us all in our lifetimes as the two of us become three. I have read to you lines of poetry to develop your love of verse, I have sung to you songs and hymns I love, to quench your spiritual thirst. I have spoken to you of family and the world they mean to me, All of whom will surround you soon, this beautiful new baby to see. I have spoken to you of our home and the warmth and love you will bring, may you always know your importance here and how your laughter will make my heart sing. I have spoken to you of God, the joy and hope He gives to my heart, praying that you, too, will discover the richness His love imparts. Little baby you just can't imagine wondrous blessings as your life begins, the greatest blessings that will be bestowed upon you, are the blessings of family and friends. My Little Girl Meghann E. Mastri Ten tiny fingers, Ten tiny toes, Two little eyes, And one little nose. A beautiful smile Curly blonde hair A perfect angle Just standing there A blank slate For me to mold A little girl For me to hold She watches my every move Sure not to miss a beat I can't believe I am a mom It's different, but neat My hero, my savior My own little me The love of my life It's hard to believe An unbreakable bond Between her and I No limit to love When it reaches the sky

I ended up just giving her the same one that I gave my other daughter for her first son, only I had to change the gender. It worked okay for now. But I do agree that more need to be written! Thank you for your responses~
