Newborn baby

My cutest little baby boy
Through you I have known all of love
Now I can feel here on earth
What I had imagined would be heaven above

Through you, I now, see how
Matter has no properties of its own
Except whatever we give to it
Based on the experiences we have known

For your 'poop', to me, is divine
And your 'susu', exotic nectar
Thus I know how love
Can change the properties of matter

Oh baby, in your eyes
I see all of creation dancing
And in your graceful movements
I see the jungle animals prancing

Sometimes when I see you
I feel I have seen it all
I feel that the essence of everything
Is contained in your body small

I feel there is nothing more to know
I feel no yearning for anything
I feel that just by being with you
I am experiencing EVERYTHING!

I feel the sky, I feel the wind
I hear music of all the ages
I become everything, and everything is me
I feel the blessings of saints and sages

When you lie asleep beside me
The whole world sleeps in you,
And as you stretch and wake up again
All the world, awakens with you.

When you look at me and smile
Everything that's me dissolves away
All else I've known, ceases to exist
And I become a part of your wonderful play.
