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

Instantly the history

Enabled to hold me down

Released the negativity

Witness this crown

Life now sworn

A child is born
