Our Little Bethany - Poem by Pete Crowther

Sweet child of love we welcome thee
To share our lives dear Bethany.
A tiny miracle you seem,
Perfect beyond our wildest dream,
Your smile, your hands, your little feet,
They are so lovable, so sweet.
We love you in so many ways,
To list them would take days and days.
Dear Bethany we’ll guard you well,
Protect you from the witch’s spell,
The unkind ways of man to man
As far as any parents can.
Our wish for you is joy and peace,
Throughout your life may they increase.
May loving kindness, beauty, too,
In all your days accompany you.

    What a thoughtful poem, Peter. I'm sure it was appreciated. Of courses the mention of witches could also refer to scary witches in fairy tales! (Report)Reply

    Apologies for line 10 to any witches who might read this poem. I just needed that line for the rhyme. Actually I think witches are very nice and much more likely to cast a good spell than an evil one. (Report)Reply
