For ‘Lillebror’ (little brother)

Safely cradled within a cloud;
Mother, father, sister so proud.
Gently swept across the sky,
comfort awaits the smallest cry.

Sleeping, unaware of any ills;
All your needs your mother fulfils.
Certain that you will meet no harm,
while protected in your mother’s arms.
Soothed by your father’s gentle caress
You dream only of the world’s loveliness.

Loved by your father’s gaze;
Your sister, too, easily amazed
by your soft cheeks and tiny feet;
Her big sister status finally complete.
Your sweet innocence awake in all
Instant adoration for someone so small
