LIFE

A grunt

A shout

A painful scream

Torn from delicate throat

From fragile looking body

Lain weakly on the white-covered bed

Covered in sweat and laced with agony

Written clearly on her face

 

Another grunt

Another shout

Another painful scream

A moment feels like forever

A minute feels like days and months

Every piercing pain feels intense

As intense as a hot burning fire

Making breathing a struggle

 

But

 

A new grunt

A new shout

A loud protesting scream

Pierced through the chaos

A cry loud in the dark night

An exclamation of encouragement

One last shout full of joy

And the long awaited cry

 

A deep sigh

A silent whisper of love

A tearful smile

A warm small fragile body

Bundled safely in a warm blanket

Embraced tightly in her arms

A light kiss placed

“Welcome to the world.”
