I awoke the morning after
And remembered I must be strong
The pain came again like lightning
How did it go so very wrong?
I am no stranger to discomfort
My heart often bruised and torn
Today the worst I must endure
Of these trials character is born..
I thought to hold you in my arms
And kiss your newborn face
But away you flew with angel's wings
Leaving only a bonnet of pink lace....
