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

 

This is not the way

this road is not secure

and I feel

I need to let you know

this road is not the

cure.

Our path is chosen

for us

we must believe

that’s true,

for all the struggles

we have

fought,

the path still leads

to

you.
