Today, I look upon
our newborn child,
I stare with complete joy
and utter fear.
Joy, because this amazing soul
leaves me breathless with wonder.
Perfect in ways
I never dreamed possible.
But I also feel intense fear.
The responsibility of instilling
tolerance, patience, love and faith
in a world that is starving
for all these virtues.
I feel inadequate.
Can I measure up to what is required of me?
Yes, I feel your presence-
immense calmness.
Knowing You reside inside of me.
You have allowed me to glimpse
at what You must have felt,
during the creation of our universe.
