AUNTY SAYS, “WELCOME!” (POEM)

Intro:
I got good news and did this little piece to celebrate it. Read and see the subject. Glory to God, the Maker of heaven and earth, who answers prayer. He is worthy of my praise! May He give you and your family many reasons to celebrate too in this year in Jesus’ name.

AUNTY SAYS, “WELCOME!”

You cannot tell the joy I feel
To hear your shrill and piercing cry
I know it’s not that you are ill
But Mama wants to scrub you clean

I really long to carry you
But phone calls will suffice for now
To see you stretch and hear you coo
Will melt my heart and make my day

I hereby join your dad and mum
To thank God you’ve safely arrived
I’m your aunty and I say, “Welcome”
You are truly loved and will always be
