"Photograph" by Michael Salerno

A very talented friend of ours from church wrote this poem for us when Jonah was born...


You are our little photograph
A memory every day
A promise of the hope ahead
And dreams along the way

Black and white or full of hue
You fill us with your smile
A glossy image of ourselves
We'll stare for just a while

As you develop through the years
Our eyes will get to see
The masterpiece of hope and joy
A tiny mystery

We'd like to place you in a book
And keep you safe inside
But God will one day give you wings
And you'll be free to fly

More precious than a work of art
Our gift from God above
A glimpse of Faith to fill our lives
Our photograph of love

By: Michael Salerno

I don't have words to describe how much this poem means to me and it just becomes more touching and relevant every time I read it.
