Emma Graham

I'm 19 years old,I live in Co.Antrim and have a five month old baby daughter who is the most important thing to me. I am currently a student with the aim of eventually becoming a midwife.

Baby Girl by Emma Graham

It's the way that you smile
And wrinkle your nose
It's the way you kick your legs
And curl up your toes

It's your rosy cheeks
And your pretty eyes
It's your button nose
And your cheerful cries

It's your innocence and peace
And your perfect trust
It's your belief in people
And that all is just

It's the way you are
A brand new life
With no resent or hate
Or concept of strife

And I hope that you grow
And that life is fair
That you will feel my love
And know I'll always care
