Here I am,

Beneath your heart,


My heart beating in happy harmony,

As my frame perceives

Your heart,

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 growing,

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.
