Dear Brooklyn, my baby girl,
Right now you're the size of a pearl.
It's still early but you've got my heart,
And I know that this is only the start.
I can't wait to hold you, and protect you,
From everything in this world untrue.
I've never been a dad before,
But this fact we can ignore,
Because I'll give you my all,
And not only when your so small,
But forever I promise to you,
I'll always hold you, always protect you.
And from today, until the day you're born,
I swear to keep this promise I've sworn.
March is just so so far away,
Special will it be that day.
In my arms for the first time,
Rocking you gently at bedtime.
Never will we be so connected,
Until the day you feel so protected.
** About my poem**
I wrote this for my unborn child that has given me a completely different outlook on life. I chose to do something interesting so I went with a AABB rhyme and also a 7,8,9,10 10,9,8,7 syllable theme. I've never wrote anything with real meaning before, only funny little rhyming limericks and such. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Loved the footnote to this, nothing changes perspective more than a child of your own, just wait till you hold her in your arms and look into her eyes. You will become her protector, she will be royalty in your arms and nothing trivial will matter anymore. What a debut write this is, and to give it a form as well. So much love and pride in this piece and I am honoured to give it an HM at least. (4 points)
