What Was Life Like?

Oh! What Love was born when he was

What Was Life Like?

What was life like before he was born?
When did happiness start?
Did we ever begin our day with a smile?
How did we live without joy?

I take a little brown hand in mine.
I look into bright, black dancing eyes.
Naturally curled lashes blink and
I see trust in a beautiful smile.

I listen to running little feet all over the house.
I hear the slamming of doors announcing
the arrival of my little one.
I play peek-a-boo and sing a small song.

I tip-toe into his room at night.
The angelic face at peace.
His rhythmic breathing lets me know
My angel's resting sound asleep.

What was life like before he was born?
Life was dismal; without hope.
Life without pleasure, without pride.
Vacant and lonely, morose.

Oh! What Love was born when he was!
How can my heart be so full?
Tears of joy fill my soul, when I hear him say
