To Love A Child

To Katie,

 

To Love A Child

by Brian Watt

 

It was upon the day I saw you born

I knew my heart was lost for now and more

A life-long pledge that day to you was sworn

To feed, to clothe, to love; it was no chore

 

Since then the years have come and gone too fast

From meals, to play, to sleep did make you grow

No time it took and now you’re grown at last

And yet my love remains remarkably so

 

What caused a love like this to come to be?

It is unknown; it is a mystery

It is invisible; nothing to see

It is a miracle; always to be

 

Someday you may a child be giv’n to raise

And then your heart will be within your gaze

 

Love, Dad
