Your dark eyes hold so many promises To the world not yet revealed.
I waited my whole life to meet you, And yet I cannot imagine a time without you.
You are my continuation, Yet you are so much more than me.
You are the manifestation of love and hope. With your life, you will unfold A tapestry of joy and sorrow, Each moment a sunrise, Each breath a miracle.
I cherish your arrival; welcome to the world.
