Infant Joy by Robert Blake

I have no name

I am but two days old.—

What shall I call thee?

I happy am

Joy is my name, —

Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty joy!

Sweet joy but two days old,

Sweet joy I call thee;

Thou dost smile.

I sing the while

Sweet joy befall thee.

Song for Baby-O, Unborn by Diane Di Prima


when you break thru

you’ll find

a poet here

not quite what one would choose.

I won’t promise

you’ll never go hungry

or that you won’t be sad

on this gutted



but I can show you


enough to love

to break your heart


I Never Knew by Martha L. Sheridan

I never knew I could love so much,

until the day I felt your touch.

I softly kissed your tiny cheek,

and from under your lashes I saw you peek.

Your beautiful eyes so small and blue,

my sweet little baby just brand new.

I cannot wait to watch you grow,

from your little head to your tiny toes.

My daughter, my love, my little joy,

my little angel, my baby doll toy.

I promise to love you with all my heart.

I’m here for you from the very start.

I’ll comfort you when you cry,

I’ll answer true when you ask me, “Why?”

While you grow, be sweet and kind,

and show all others how much you shine.

Daddy’s Little Angel by Jason A. Hodges

When you were born, you filled my heart with pride,

And I was overcome by the joy I felt inside.

As I held you in my arms that very first day,

I knew I would never let any harm come your way.

With your tiny little hands and tiny little feet,

Every time I look at you, my heart skips a beat.

As I watch you sleep in the middle of the night,

I hope and pray I will do everything right.

I know I may make some mistakes along the way,

But I promise to do my best not to every single day.

I often wonder what you will grow up to be,

But whatever you become will be fine with me.

So whatever you may decide to do in your life,

Maybe an astronaut, a lawyer, or even a doctor’s wife,

I can say this without any doubt at all,

I will always be there to catch you if you fall.

And another promise I make to you from me,

Daddy’s little angel you will always be.

A Mother’s Promise by Nicole Seymour

I promise to always love you in whoever you decide to be

I promise to be there for you, whenever you need me

I promise to not pass judgment without first hearing you out

I promise to be in your life from day one and to learn what you’re about

I promise to keep you healthy and to help you grow nice and strong

I promise to teach you to be a good person and know what is right and wrong

I promise to protect you and to always know you are okay

I promise to always remember that being your mom is a gift, every single day

These words, my angel, are my promise to you

And during tough times I will read them through

To be reassured that what I am doing is right

And never giving up without a fight

You are now and will forever be,

My sweetest little boy.. My baby

Mommy Cries by Ashley R. Smiley

The waters will still ebb and flow,

The moon still pulls the tide.

But nothing could be more naturally so,

Than the tears from a mother’s eyes.

It starts the day your child is born when he’s first laid upon your breast,

In spite of pain from muscles worn,

Heartstrings tug at your chest.

Tear drops fall from sleepy eyes and trickle down your cheeks,

You listen as your child first cries for your breast which he seeks.

Time has passed the pain is gone; a bonding has taken place,

You look at your little one; the tears still on your face.

Just once more you look at him before you lay him down to sleep,

You reach out for a kiss on a whim; knowing your heart is his to keep.

These lovely poems embody some of the most unforgettable experiences with having babies as well as the various emotions that come with being parents. They remind us of how lucky we are to be blessed with these little people in our lives. 

Frequently Asked Questions on Best Baby Poems

Who are baby poems for?

Baby poems are not meant for anyone in particular. They can be read and enjoyed by everybody. However, baby poems will most likely be more appealing to expecting parents, new parents, or those wishing to be parents one day.

Is it okay to read baby poems aloud to your baby?

Yes, definitely. Reading baby poems aloud (but not too loud) provides your baby with sensory stimulation and helps them become more familiar with you and your voice. 

What are the benefits of reading baby poems to your baby?

Reading baby poems to your little ones makes them more familiar with your voice. It helps them relax and feel more secure. The words won’t really matter much to them because they won’t be able to understand them. However, your voice and intonation will.

Does reading a poem to your baby work better than singing a song to them? 

It depends on what your goal is. If you just want your baby to become more familiar with you, then reading a poem (or even just talking) to them will probably be more effective than singing a song because of the absence of other sounds. However, if you want them to calm down, having a melody accompany your voice might just work better.
