My newest grandson arrived today.  Brady Matthew Gargano

Brady M.

We wait with great anticipation
his first glimpse of the light
as we wait the warmth of affirmation
with heartstrings of delight
that have worn thin each passing month
from the excitement of it all
we’ve watched him grow within the womb
for his arrival in the fall.

His mother beams in painful glee;
His dad is full of pride
though hard to notice, we can see
the excitement in every stride
as he watches her closely…. in every step
and will…. her every day
as she brings to life their first born son,
as God has blessed their way.

She’s walked with guarded steps, the trail
that leads unto this life
to bring this miracle…. every detail
while in silence a drum and fife
will faintly blare the coming joy,
even though he’s coming late,
and we’ll all line up for the baby boy;
his arrival is on this date…..1 October 2013

This time of year invokes, for many, memories closest and dearest to their hearts,  and the memory of the moment of my first-born always tops the list.  Happy, healthy times to all this holiday season.


For the angel that whispered in my ear
said ‘Today a father you will be.’
Startled, I turned and eyed a mirror
for the angel that whispered in my ear.
We named our first-born Amy and with a tear
each October fourth I steal a look to see
for the angel that whispered in my ear
said ‘Today a father you will be.’
