Blessed - Poem by Stevie Taite

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.
