I Wish I Was Your Baby


Sweet Wisdom's new born
Born of the morning
Pride in the new form
Shows it to heaven
Feeds it with laughter
Feeds it with time
Feeds it a hunger
A fire deep within her mind

A man of good fortune
Passion and worldly wise
Divine inspiration
With a humorous side
Touching and caring
Intelligent and giving
Never forgetting
Where goes the world

Oh I wish, I wish I was your baby
Cradled safe in your arms
Held and protected from the cold and the heat
Kissed lightly, held snuggly
Knowing only joy, as he plays at your feet

Sweet Wisdom's second child
Who’s born of the earth
A beautiful child
A touch wild mischief and mirth
Surrounded by love
His eyes are the day
Bringer of warmth
Like the sun in the sky

Fates jewel and foot solider
Prophet to the rich and the poor
Keeper of time,
Brave passions giver of law

Oh I wish, I wish I was your baby
Feeding at your breast
Never in fear of hunger, true love at it's best
Sharing the pre dawn with you
Stealing a smile
Knowing you love me too

Sweet Wisdom's third child
Born of the breeze
Strength of creation
Like the breast plate of peace
A brave and gentle friend
Defender of truth
A mixture of man
With a reckless ounce of youth

The lance of the people
He thrusts forth to battle with time
He cares for all people
And honors the dead
Age has no boundaries
A halo crowns his head

Oh I wish, I wish I was your baby
Floating snuggly inside of you
Feeling myself one in your whole
Hearing your heart beat
Feeling myself complete
Hearing the song no human voice can hope to hum

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
