Baby drifts to sleep

Small body ~ so New, Perfect, Compact, Complete
Tiny sighs ~ you slowly relax from the day
Sweet new voice ~ you try out new sounds to tell me
Short chunky arm ~ reaches up to touch my face
Never-trimmed hair ~ fine in my fingers, sweetheart
Tiny hands ~ through them your will is formed
Little breaths ~ create a rhythm with my heart
Warm body rises…falls…asleep in my arms
