TO AN UNBORN CHILD

It is important to me
that I spend part of the next few hours
here alone with you in the darkness.

You and I will never be this close again.

By morning you will be
a tiny person all your own.

No longer the kicking, demanding bulge in my body
that I have grown to love so well.

I pray God will safely guide you
on your journey tonight.
And I ask Him for the strength
to help you all I can.

Again, you signal your impatience to be free.
Time to wake Daddy.
