Old and New

Source

 Here's something special to keep you warm.

It once belonged to your Daddy, so it's a little worn.

It was made by his Mommy, who loves him true.

As you can see, it was not just made with baby blue.

Along with the old, you will find a new.

A new little blankie, just for you.

This one is special, just made for you.

It was made by your Mamma, who loves you, too,
