On such a special moment of their life, what can be a better way to greet them or present them with a few poems? Check out the poems dedicated to new parents, given below
For New Parents
Before I could be me
the Lord said, "I must see,
your precious soul is guided by
someone handpicked by Thee.
You are my little lamb,
pure and innocent.
I will find the perfect pair
before you're heaven-sent."
He pondered over His long, long list,
smiled and said, "I know who
is full of love and tenderness
waiting just for you."
He took me in the strength
of His gentle hand,
and laid me in the loving arms
of that special woman & man.
When I opened up my eyes
I was so very glad,
to see the Lord had chosen
to be my Mom & Dad!
