April Fool

One year ago

today,

but it wasn’t

funny –

nor foolish,

no tricks

no laughter,

only

surprise –

tears, worry

and

fear…

and

an overwhelming sense

of

sadness

and bewilderment.

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!
