Hello Son - first kiss contest

They stood there holding hands
Young faces wrinkled with worry
Their little boy was born too early
Neo natal unit now held the key

Their son was in a hurry to be born
Couldn't wait the allotted time
Now so fragile, their hearts were torn
No hug or kiss was theirs to claim

Two long weeks they waited 
At his cotside  prayers were held
Christen him Michael they had stated
So the priest did as they had said

Next morning the nurses smiled
Michael 's battle was over and won
They could hold their baby at last
That first kiss, said hello son.

    How beautiful! This one is definitely a winner. My twins were born premature, I remember the long two week and three day wait to be able to hold them and take them home. You wonderfully described the patience of love.

    Wow what a story of perseverance, to hold on to life and to receive that first kiss finally! That is so cool that you were their midwife! I bet you were just as worried as the parents were, well almost anyway! This is a tremendous poem about their love for him and their dedication for life! What a lovely piece, such an outstanding poem, Great Work!!
