YOUR BIRTH



Your God had every echo of your soulís design in mind, before He made any other kind.

Your mother held delightful dreams pondering about you, long before actually holding you.

Your parents, as separate lives, chose to embrace as one, letting their union presently conceive your presence.

Your father and your mother became your father and your mother, with the pregnancy of you in them.

Your mother nourished you every hour of every day for months, within her and without harm.

Your father occupied his heart and head, in work and prayer, with vigilance of duty toward your assurance.

Your size and shape grew from pointedly indistinct to ponderously distinct, developing you in plain view, well hidden.

Your mother, drenched in adrenaline and ache, rallied strength and sinew, to welcome the way for your birth day.

Your deliverance, hallowed by heaven, heralded your continuance of faith, hope, and charity, unto infinity.



END.

So poignant.

Brian, I really enjoyed this poem...I especially liked the line about being in plain view, well hidden.
