Warrior Poets

Travelling slowly into the world beyond Premature baby Girl
Suddenly severed from our physical bond
Entering this world gasping for air
Is this the beginning or the end of our affair?

Bright lights raining down on me
Numerous voices, but where are thee?
Hoisted up; then nestling skin to skin
One journey ends as another does begin

The rhythmic beating of your heart
Poetry in motion heavenly art
Tenderness and joy blends of motherhood
Mother and daughter relationship understood
