Help! New Mom!

This little bundle, God did bless,
I never knew could cause such stress.
From sleepless nights and crying fits,
I know Iíve almost lost my wits.
Her poop can cover queen size sheets.
No socks will stay upon her feet.
Her lung-size must be large- no doubt,
For all the screaming she puts out.

Yet in those quiet moments, still,
A brand new loveliness I feel.
A taste of Heaven in such small skin,
Who grew, formed, lived, and fit within.
A miracle, no less will do
And knowing that will get me through:

The fifth diaper within an hour,
The milk I let sit out and sour,
The burp-up stain upon my blouse,
The toyland scattered through my house,
The snotty nose that will not stop,
Those times I feel my head will pop.
From frantic nights to days of calm,
Help me, I am a brand new mom.

As I am not a mom I do not know personally the hardships, nor the happiness, but this was so great at adding a bit of both. You showed both sides, the love you have for your daughter but also the 'what do I do??' feeling that comes along with it. Enjoy your little bundle! Great poem :)
