Infant of Mine

Little one with fingers all curled
Ready to take on this great big world
Like a diamond in a mine, an oyster with a pearl
Excited to be introduced to my little boy or girl

Been waiting nine months for you, my surprise
Imagining the color your hair, skin, and eyes 
The beauty in your picture  would take first prize
A smile creeps on my face as anticipations rise

Oh tiny one I can't wait to meet
With delicate hands and fragile feet
But as I prepare for my infant to greet 
The doctor cries out "There is no heartbeat"

Now the room is racing faster than a relay
As I feel the pulse in my veins slowly delay
The hope once there, rottens with decay
Watching them with agony take my baby away

I thought nothing was as safe as a mother's womb
Didn't know it'd remodel into your burial tomb
How I wanted this life to blossom and bloom
Seeing now my happiness was overly assumed

Couldn't wait to be like every superhero mom
The one you'd always be able to depend on
But I failed you even before your life had begun
Now the blame and the guilt are eating me numb

Oh God I don't understand why I'm left here so weak
But even in my depression, it is You I seek
Your knowledge is higher, Your plans more mystique  
Just don't mind this river cascading toward my cheek
