Blessed


Pop as my waters broke.
So full of anticipation.
Waves of contraction.
Pushed free.
Happy!

Oh burning ring of fire.
Stretched to ripping point.
Then followed relief.
Baby boy.
Joy!



Bearing down, sending your invite.
Come meet your family.
Sister waited excitedly.
Accepted invitation.
Elation!


Perfect mop of dark hair.
I held you close.
You smelt sweet.
Tiny feet.
Complete!

A cascade of overwhelming emotions
Staring into husbands eyes
Happy tears cried
Bursting with
Pride!

Words cannot express how happy.
Joy, elation, complete, pride
I wholly invest
my love.
Blessed.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
