Birthday Babe

Baby Eyes

One year ago my girl was born.
One year ago by early morn
You came forth from your mother’s womb
Into a strange hospital room:
Into my hands, into my arms
I held you, babe. Your newborn charms
Protested being born this way.
So did we all on our birthday.

And so – God bless you one year on
God keep, protect you. And upon
Your life His face most strongly shine
And grant you peace. O babe of mine.
