Premie Poetry: Ode to a Tiny Granddaughter

To herald the safe arrival of Tommy’s new baby sister, I’m publishing my first ever poem to a premie.


You’re ever so tiny, impossibly cute,

Utterly miniature, very astute.

You know when it’s dinner; you know when it’s snack.

You’d charm the shirt right off a car salesman’s back.

We love you with all of your sweet winning ways,

And we know that we’ll love you for all of our days.

But always remember that God loves you more.

From before you were born until forever more.
