Funny thing was you were still within the protective "container" of your mum's womb
But you "kicked" and my hand was there expecting to feel you
And i did....
Oh! what a beautiful feeling
I remember the first time i saw a picture of you
It was an ultra-sound scan (yes it was!)
Immediately i set my eyes on it, i knew you'd be a girl
Although you were still about 5months then
But you already had a pose
(Talk about one classy foetus....lol)
Finally you came to us....after all the anxiety and faith-filled prayers
You came in all your beauty and grace
Gabrielle....beautiful name...you are a beauty to behold
I look at you and i see a beautiful girl
When i say beautiful, i mean a beautiful spirit and a beautiful body
Like a cornerstone polished after the resemblance of a palace
I can't wait to hold you and feel you in my arms...
Change your diapers (yes, anything for you)
Feed you and rock you to sleep (my best part)
I can't wait to make you smile
Or hear you chuckle
Or even your cries...
Gabrielle...The Lord is my strength
Gabrielle...My beautiful niece
