Where Did You Come From Baby Dear?



Where did you come from Baby Dear?
Out of everywhere, into here.


Where did you get your eyes so blue?
Out of the sky when I came through.


What makes your forehead so smooth and high?
A soft hand stroked it as I went by.


What makes your cheek like a warm, white rose?
Something better than anyone knows.


Where did you get that pearly ear?
God spoke, and it came out to hear.


How did they all just come to be you?
God thought about me and so I grew.


But how did you come to us Baby Dear?
God thought of you, and so I am here.


- George MacDonald


This poem was in a book my mom gave Harper after she was born.  I try to read it to her before she goes to bed at night - I love love it.  I tried to read it to Sawyer too but she closed the book on me ;)
