Baby

I didn't know, that you would be so red,
so strange looking.
so round and little and fat
with so much hair,
and so much plumpness
and such a squishy face.
i don't want to imagine what you will look like when you grow up,
i have terrible visions you know,
but for now i am content to stare at a picture of you
with your eyes squeezed shut
and eyebrows furrowed,
intent on shutting out the confusion around you
and concentrating hard on being asleep.
i hope you will love me as much as i already love you.
