Breath of life has entered
Heart is filled with glee
Dawn of love's creation
My child my gift to me

Little hands to touch me
Smile that fills my soul
Soft and warm your presence
Upon my heart your scroll

Tender and so gentle
This feeling of delight
Motherhood a joyous gift
My child my special light

Today I feel you reaching
You lay upon my chest
So innocent and loving
Today my life so blest

This love I feel so gentle
The scent of you will stay
In years I shall remember
How sweet your soft bouquet

Close my eyes and see you
My life my sweet new dawn
Remembrances I carry
Since day that you were born.
