Babys First Breath

Down, down, down she came Into her mother’s waiting womb; From out of the dark-bright sky above, knowing Intrinsically what to do. Find her place, find her place, retrace Her steps once more; Down from the blue and black into Another life of rich or poor. Earth bound, earth bound, Beautifully bound like bows; Wrapped in swaddling gossamer gowns Where’s she’s been, nobody knows. Up until now, up until now, up until Baby’s first breath; Smiling sweetly, knowing completely It’s time to wake up, sleep And forget.

    So glad I found one I hadn't read Terry. The miracle of birth is an amazizng moment for a woman to experience and for a man to be able to depict it so beautifully makes me wonder if you saw it also. Just great!
