Layli, 2 Months

Like the sun slipping quietly
over the horizon,
this fresh young soul
ushers in a new day
whose weight and beauty
I can only begin to fathom.

So many mysteries
I can only learn from her.
Each day she further
widens the circumference
of my heart.

Praise be to God,
the most excellent of creators
for bestowing upon us
this deeply cherished gift.

I pray that He will make us
parents worthy of this divine task
and that her radiant heart will shine
for the rest of eternity.
