7 December, Advent Light VI: So Beautiful

Here is one of Sheila Billingsley’s last poems, written for the birth of her latest great-grand-child. It is appropriate for Advent Light, babies remind us that our faith is in a world dwelt in by its creator, renewed day by day for our joy.

Tomorrow would have been Sheila’s 93rd birthday.

So beautiful he is,
So tiny,
So perfect!
Of course he will grow
And wear muddy boots
And wet his nappies
And spoil your sleep
And creep up close 
To feel your love
And feel your heartbeat
Feel your breath
And bring you joy
As no-one else can do.
Tiny as he is,
And perfect.
