Opal Child

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Born under a waxing moon

With a fiery spirit in her eyes

One look, her daddy swooned

When he heard his baby’s cry.

As he laid his eyes upon her

He chose her first name

In Spanish, it means beautiful

And so he did proclaim.

His hopes for her were high

He knew she was born from love

As he listened to her tiny cries

He asked of God above.

Please keep her safe from harm

When I cannot be there

Protecting her in your arms

Ease her worries and cares.

She is my opalescent child

Her spirit shining bright

Please dear God, give her smiles

And hold her in your light.
