A baby sister


Look a

new born baby

we all feel

very bliss.


Cannot smile

or see yet

the tiny

little sis.


Has no dreams

is only sleeping

safely on

her mothers arm.


Sister watches

and is wondering,

feels happy

safe and warm.


There’s so much

to learn

little children

daughters mine.


Hope life will

make you happy,

that your star

will always shine.
