I turn to you

in the middle

of the night

the warmth of

your skin

next to mine

your soft,

gentle breathing

reminding me

I am safe

safe in your




my mind.




A Child’s Birth


All the pain

and grueling struggle,

to bring you here

was worth the trouble.


When your head appeared,

we were both intrigued,

and as you slipped forth

I’ve never felt so relieved!


We counted your fingers,

and tugged at your toes,

we felt your smooth skin,

then we touched your pink nose!


I wanted to cry

but my throat felt so tight,

I had longed for the day

we could kiss you good-night!


Happy Birthday Sarah Anne


I Bleed Too

Your words,

cutting through my soul

making my spirit bleed

tears waiting to fall.

You have

no idea of my pain,

as my chest heaves heavy,

my mind cluttered.

Did I?

Did I bring on this hate?

Without ever knowing  your past

your pain?

Never would I

no reason no personal gain,

or agenda do I have,

only the pain

of your words.
