To Love A Child


To Katie,


To Love A Child

by Brian Watt


It was upon the day I saw you born

I knew my heart was lost for now and more

A life-long pledge that day to you was sworn

To feed, to clothe, to love; it was no chore


Since then the years have come and gone too fast

From meals, to play, to sleep did make you grow

No time it took and now you’re grown at last

And yet my love remains remarkably so


What caused a love like this to come to be?

It is unknown; it is a mystery

It is invisible; nothing to see

It is a miracle; always to be


Someday you may a child be giv’n to raise

And then your heart will be within your gaze


Love, Dad
