baby

you're falling asleep in my arms
dimpled hand grasping my finger
droopy blue eyes study mine

complete trust and adoration

i stroke your head and wonder
what thoughts will go 'round in there
when you're all grown up

i wonder how you'll change your world
when you're a man
what heartaches you'll have to suffer

dear little baby!

is it possible that, then
you could offer more to this poor world
than you do now?
