Slippery and wet
Indignant yet
At the perceived indignity of birth.

Soon wails die
Youíre resigned to sigh
As I whisper to you of your worth

And Iíve waited so long
To hear the song
That I know your life will compose

Only your arrival,
That cry of survival
Could inspire such glorious prose

But for now just rest
Knowing the best
Days are so well before you

I will hold you tight
And if I have to - fight
To give you all thatís true

For there were months I prayed
Fearing youíd fade
Before you came to be

But I held on to hope
And he helped me cope
And now through you itís Him I see

Only His glory
Could weave such a story
Of miraculous answered prayer

Thatís why now
I kneel and bow
And place you back in his care

He sent you to me
And now I can see
Life holds ano more meaning than this:

That you are His child
But mine for a while
So I promise not a moment, Iíll miss
