An ode to my body

I felt the butterflies kiss the 
emptiness of my womb.
I knew you were there before I 
knew. 
The pride in your fathers eyes. 
As inside me you grew.

The stretching straining as my 
muscles turned, twisted and 
then torn.
Never did I once complain.
The love ingrained in my smile, 
constantly worn. 

Four days I laboured.
Euphoric, exhausted and 
hallucinogenic in state. 
Your father never left my side. 
The operation - silence lasted a 
lifetime. 
As we waited to hear your fate. 

They cut, they pulled, we 
waited.
An apprehensive tear down my 
cheek did roll. 
The fear was palpable. 
Your cry, like a siren my heart 
it consoled. 

My body bears the scars.
My mind, my heart and soul
In your gratitude will forever 
be. 
The greatest gift - you brought 
my son to me.

    Blessed are the child bearers for they bring love into the world. Sometimes births can be so traumatic but the end result of holding your child is ample compensation. Well delivered poem.
