Babys First Breath
Down, down, down she came
Into her mother’s waiting womb;
From out of the dark-bright sky above, knowing
Intrinsically what to do.
Find her place, find her place, retrace
Her steps once more;
Down from the blue and black into
Another life of rich or poor.
Earth bound, earth bound,
Beautifully bound like bows;
Wrapped in swaddling gossamer gowns
Where’s she’s been, nobody knows.
Up until now, up until now, up until
Baby’s first breath;
Smiling sweetly, knowing completely
It’s time to wake up, sleep
