THE JOY OF MY WORLD
by dominique shantel lane

UNSURE OF WHAT THAT DAY HELD 
I TOUCHED MY BELLY OVERWHELMED 
BY WHAT I HAD BEEN CHOSEN TO PERFORM. 
THEN AN ANGEL CAME ONE DAY 
AND TOLD ME TO KNEEL DOWN AND PRAY 
FOR UNTO ME A MAN CHILD WOULD BE BORN 

EVEN THOUGH I WAS NOT WITH THIS MAN 
I STILL KNEW YOUR LIFE DESERVED A CHANCE. 
BUT EVERYBODY TOLD ME TO BE SMART 
LOOK AT YOURSELF THEY SAID 
DOMINIQUE, BABY, USE YOUR HEAD 
BUT INSTEAD I CHOSE TO USE MY HEART. 

NOW THE JOY OF MY WORLD IS MY LITTLE MAN. 
HOW PRECIOUS, NOTHING COULD BE MORE. 
I'VE NEVER BEEN IN LOVE LIKE THIS BEFORE. 
NOW LET ME PRAY TO KEEP YOU FROM ALL THE HURT 
AND PAIN THAT WILL SURELY COME.
SEE, LIFE FOR YOU, MY PRINCE, HAS JUST BEGUN.

I THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING ME 
TO COME THROUGH UNTO LIFE TO BE 
THE BEAUTIFUL REFLECTION OF HIS GRACE.
SEE, I KNOW THAT A GIFT SO GREAT 
IS ONE ONLY GOD COULD MAKE 
AND I'M REMINDED EVERY TIME I SEE YOUR FACE 
THAT THE JOY OF MY WORLD IS MY LITTLE MAN.

THIS POEM GOES OUT TO MY NEWBORN SON 
DERICK DESHAWM TUCKER J.R.
BORN DEC.3.2001

MOMMY LOVES YOU
