This was written as I watched my oldest sleep beside me as a newborn.

First Moments

 

Her eyes open

Questioning,

yearning,

pleading.

Her mouth widens

silently begging to be filled

Her fists rise

beating the air hopelessly

Can't you see

How much she needs you?

Your love?

Your affection?

Your Attention?

For one so small

the world is enormous..

Everything is cold...

The air...

The atmosphere...

The giants that rule.

Those that know

what she needs

but don't seem to care.

She draws a breath

looks around in a blur

and lets out her first scream

of pain, fear, and hunger.

The cry to let the world know

That she has come...

That she breathes...

Fears....

Trusts....

Lives.

That was the way

her first moments

in this world were.

But only until

a soft voice whispered

calmly and lovingly~

"Welcome, little one,

to the outside world.

I am here to care for you...

To feed and comfort you...

and to love you....

with all my heart....

Little one,

I am your Mother..."
