Heart of our hearts,
Love of our love,
Flesh of our flesh,
Blood of our blood,

Miracle in process,
God Himself creating,
Designing and refining,
Sweet cherubim in waiting.

Perfect little arms and legs,
Head and body, too,
A precious life, now growing,
A tiny soul, brand new.

Huge responsibility,
So very monumental,
Though, since time begun,
Fundamental, elemental.

Fulfillment of a dream,
Answer to a prayer,
Hi, sweet baby, welcome,
Are you really, truly there?
