Child is Born

Since I realized I was alone
Since I realized he was never coming home
Accepting the loss within me
Learning everything independently
There were always others around me
But none of them looked like me

Inherited love in a different feeling
Embedded in the concept of creation
Complicated in that new beginning
Proudly smiling at the planted seed
The proud excitement of something new
Always had that with you

Wrote down every promise
Each and every action I pledged to keep
Looking retrospectively
Mirror gave me all that I need
Every gap and hole in me
Providing you every opportunity

That day finally arrived
Wish I could have captured
That tear from my eye
That love anew
Never knew love
Like I knew it with you

Conception of history
Realization of everything in me
Damnation struck me down.
Evolution couldn’t stop this now.
Perpetuation of something renewed.
Redemption of this crown.
My life now sworn.
My child is born.
