STILL BIRTHDAY

Still Birthday

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Still Birthday]

You were the desirous
Prayer answered in moment
Of serendipitous discovery
The miracle that came alive

Day by day
In joyous fluttering
Here and there
In leaps and bounds
Beautifying the carrier
Glorifying the maker
Multiplying months in
Three seasons of three
In patient waits

You were my weak mornings
Blessed noons
Grateful evenings
Pica and nausea
Graceful fatigue
Inevitable tantrums
Complements cementing complaints

Ultrasound, urinalysis, timely
Palpitation certify a steady heart
Wrapped up in congenital complexities
The fervent effectual prayers
I prayed for you

But you were the arrival of a hurried departure
The momentary miracle gone too soon
Another proof of my womanhood!
A still birthday is worth celebrating!
