Lydiaís Song

Tiny, yet filled with sweetness pure
A child is born with strength and heart
To share with all what true love is
Godís gift ~ He set her apart

Dancing eyes light up the sun
Her bright smile sings a happy song
Strength is the loving gift He gives
Softness covers her will, made strong

One tiny child can fight and win
Those who surround have grown and learned
In this little girl ~ Godís Will lives
And in their minds, a lessonís burned

Her song resounds within them all
Lydia, filled with a heavenly love
To share what true believing is
All offer thanks to Him, above

Ö for Lydia Ö


Written with love ~
Alison

What a pretty poem... :-)

Filled with warm, heartfelt feelings.

Nicely expressed Alison..
Made me glad I came here for a fast read before bed.

What a wonderful feeling this sweet poem filled me wit as I read Lydia's Gong, then went back and reread it aloud.Nice wordplay throughout.

Thank you, guys. I appreciate you picking up on how special this little girl is to me. She just turned a year old. Unable to move her arms and legs when born, she is now toddling around. She is up to speed (pardon the pun) with others in her age group. And, Jimmy?  I'll give her that extra hug today from you.

I have four daughters; Iím surrounded by females and loving every minute. Baby girls are enchanting and so is your poem.
Very well done

Very nice indeed!
That type of strength is always so amazing.
A tribute to a special life is always rewarding.

Really lovely, Alison (but I don't expect anything less from you).  I felt and knew all the way through the poem that there was a challenge for that brave little soul, though I didn't know what it was.  Thank you for caring for all who need you, Alison.
