On the Night You Were Born

On the Night You Were Born
inspired by my nephew and the book by Nancy Tillman

On the night you were born
the news was trumpeted and blasted
to the four corners of the world
a Boy had been born
the likes of which had never been seen
As the news flew far and fast
we could not be stopped

In the dark of night
by light of blue moon
you gathered this family
something much easier said than done
everyone came to see this new son
and they smiled to each other
and they smiled to the son
the joy on their faces
could not be undone
we all whispered
then shouted
this boy is a special one

The wonder in our faces
and the awe in our eyes

We blessed your mother
Kissed your father
We blessed and kissed them both

So you see little boy
Just what you've done
your entry into this world
could never be a quiet one
