My Child!

Time moved slowly
My breath was heavy
Sitting on the bench outside
Waiting, and waiting
The glowing red bulb
only added to my agony

With every shriek
with every cry
My heart bled
"Hope she's fine"
I prayed
"Yes. She is."
I reaffirmed.

The wait was over
A lady in white
pressed my shoulder
"Congratulations! It's a girl!"
Ah! The sweetness!
Those words chimed in my ear.

I ran inside
The relief, the happiness
the excitement of a little child
merging seamlessly
forming a heady concoction
of ecstasy.

There was the girl
I loved the most
and beside her
was the little angel
A piece of paradise
wrapped in white.

She was the most precious to me
I loved her now even more
Respected her even more
Worshiped her even more
Because she has become
A mother. A creator.

She lay calm
Peace, joy, relief
Wonder, jubilation, content
danced on her face
as she closed her eyes
to soak in the nectar.

I looked at the little angel
Felt the higher power around
"Gone on her father" I smiled
"The same sharp nose, and
the same small eyes"
The gentleman nodded proudly.

Hearing my voice
the girl opened her eyes
Those fulfilled eyes
"Papa" she whispered
There, she is my daughter
Ah! The sweetness engulfs me!
