tears of Laughter
for ten long years they waited to hold a baby close,
ten long years hopes were slated, each baby they did lose.
met a lovely obstetrician who had a brand new toy,
one that would help the couple to have that girl or boy.
another year they tried until that magic moment when
the line was there in the tester, brought their hopes alive again
nine months she was nurtured, not allowed to do this or that,
the ring on the calender approached a time I wont forget.
tears of hope were on their faces knew this was the final chance,
all was hush as the dad paced, then we saw the blade and clamps.
all was over in a moment hauled out of the mothers womb
a protesting mucky baby, saw a lady glow and bloom
they now have a daughter, called her Faith of which they had,
tears now are tears of laughter no more time to be sad.
