Lucas by Riley Granzien (Highly Commended)

l went to see my little brother
On the day he was born
l held him for the first time
And he was nice and warm

He had tiny little fingers
And tiny little toes
He had a tiny little bed
And a tiny little nose

He never ate any food
All he drank was milk
He slept most of the day
And his skin felt like silk

Over time he has grown
He giggles, laughs and talks
It took him a long time
But now he even walks

He is two years old already
And not so little any more
I’ve seen him grow every day
Lucas will keep growing I’m sure!
