HERE I AM
Here I am,
Beneath your heart,
As my frame perceives
Gentlely throbbing within your breast.
I began in secret and in darkness,
A mystery, even to myself.
Day by day, nature shapes my clay,
As you await the blessed dawn of my day.
What I know, I know by existence.
I am now all trust,
Simply becoming who I am.
Comfort, you give comfort.
Love, you are all I know of love.
As you wait for me, my mother,
The eyes of my soul are wide open.
I behold you, smiling upon me.
Mother of my moments,
Expectant, vigilant and waiting,
You cradle me.
You are my home of sweet delight.
