Bono's poem at beginning of Bocelli song...

...almost made me cry today. I put it on as I was walking down Broadway in NYC and the sounds of the city just faded away. If I could sum up how I think having a kid would feel like, that would be it. Simply beautiful.

Thanks Bono.

ps-who wrote that?

I read a few time ago that the poem was written by Andrea Bocelli himself by the time that his son was born. If I´m not wrong the boy is now 6 years-old.

Here it is

Wild, like a giant, proud and happy
I take my baby in my arms
Fragile, innocent, and alive
Like a little bird pushing against my chest
Abandoned, quiet, and safe
For an instant, almost sweetly
Destiny appears to me like a dream
I see myself old, surrendered
Seated there near the coal fire
Waiting for the evening with the anxiety of a child
Just to see him coming back home
The gift of his smile, his words and kindness
It's like a promise that can solve the enormous joy of one of his caresses
Then I wake up, and I've already forgotten
But inside of me, the kid's trapped soul advises me
That this newborn child is already more important to me than that --
My own life

Wow. I just gave that CD to my Mom for Valentine's Day, even though I haven't heard it yet. Do you like the music? I figured I couldn't go wrong with Bocelli & Mom.
