As I Look at You

As I look at you

 

As I look at you,

I see the love you have for me…

 

And as I look at you,

I stand in awe of the mercy of Ar-Raheem,

 

As I look at you…

I am amazed at your innocence and purity

 

And as I look at you,

I am embraced by a smile so sincere and sweet;

telling me instantly

your complete joy

at seeing me.

 

Masha-Allah!

How you flatter me so,

To think how easily you are pleased,

 

Masha-Allah!

To think of all this love you have for me…

 

(For all my little babies)

(I haven’t written a poem in years, so am kinda rusty. (smiles) Plus I wish that it flowed more smoothly…But anyways, with this poem I wanted to capture that special moment in time all mothers can relate to…When your baby first catches sight of your presence and he/she is just so overjoyed at seeing you that he/she can’t stop shining his/her great big toothless or almost toothless smile!)
