Message to my wife.

With baited breathe we waited.
To hear the tiny sound .
Beat the heart,the heart beat of one so small.
Life that is new,newly found.

I turned..
I looked upon you differently.
From that day.
A jewel more beautiful holding life.
In your belly.
You are my one,now two.
I looked at my hands.
Each line.
I felt every meaning.
A path to this moment.
You handed me black and white photograph.
The out line of our child.
I said to you it’s up to us to fill this outline in.

I gazed back down at my hands.
I was now a precious stone.
Yet I was more fragile than you.
I didn’t let you know.
