Your little cry brings joy and delight
To your mother who labor in pain
And to all of us anxiously waiting
That finally you will see glimpses of light.
Now you’re four months old, Astin Parker
You look more a child than before
One thing you really want to savor
On your mom’s arms and gentle shoulders.
Cling on to your mother’s gentle shoulders
Your tender hugs shows a genuine trust
Sweetly telling her this bond will last
Forever I’ll treasure this love you render.
Tomorrow, you’ll face life’s new challenges
Your father, mother and all of us
Will always be there to give advice
To decide what is right and wise.
Learn and follow your father’s good act
Meekness and humbleness he has lots
Eventually you will discover other godly traits
On how to keep the family intact.
From your dear mom, affection and submission
Two most important values you should remember
One more thing, be a cheerful giver
God’s bountiful blessings will come beyond expectations.
Much you will learn from Grandma Rose
With gladness, she will share God’s promises
Her creativity, ingenuity, honesty, thoughtfulness and braveness
Traits needed to withstand daily life’s race.
Simplicity and wits your Aunt Karen holds
A laugh that could change the world
A creative mind and God-centered heart
She too has a passion for arts.
Understand love and compassion from Uncle Kevin
He will tell you how pain merits victory
And victory’s a tool for new beginnings
That will prepare you for tomorrow’s glory.
Parker, little things I want to say
Be strong and firm in all situations
Carry along with you humor and patience
Accept mistakes and always respect others positions.
