From within, I remember listening to your heartbeat,
one beat, two beats, three beats four,
the harmony of love, which I wanted nothing more.
Time passed by and I soon ran out of space,
forced into a world,
where I would soon see your face.
Separated for the first time,
only seconds apart from you, I was so afraid,
not realizing it was my new life to be made.
Eyes closed, body shivering from head to feet,
overcome by fear of not hearing your heartbeat,
I had only one desire,
it was you I wanted to meet.
My fear grew and it grew,
in this world frightening and new,
feeling the touch of a stranger’s hand
speaking words I didn’t understand.
I was not ready, not then not now,
I wanted to find you,
but I didn’t know how.
I wanted to go back,
Yet somehow I knew, it something I just couldn’t do.
So with my first breath in a world apart from you,
I did what all babies do.
I cried and I cried,
Hoping you would find me,
and I would find you.
Suddenly, they laid me in your arms,
as you griped me tight,
with all your love, and all your might.
Then from within,
Embodied without sin,
I heard a familiar sound,
It was the sound of your heartbeat,
one beat, two beats, three beat four,
the sound I grew so fond of,
which I knew was your love.
There within your grasp,
I felt your soul and more,
Under your love,
That I was born to adore.
