days of fears
nights of tears
lifetimes of waiting
dark tunnel of worry
dreams perched on a precipice
prayers uttered unto silence

and now you’re here
blinking out at the world
through bright eyes
living, breathing gift
purposed with love
baptized with tears

    Your poem is as spectacular as the baby! Tears came to my eyes reading the poem, and resonating with the story.
