Cry - Poem by Stephen Holland

Cry

A child alive in your womb today
A child from love, and wanted that way will be you
It will be you
A child in alive in your womb today
A child from love has changed my life, and I’ll say
‘You’ll be cool, and nobodies fool’
We’ll make no plans we have no grand designs
On you and your life
Your little hand won’t be tied with expectations
You’ll be our delight
Just be yourself
Give me a kick
To show you’re alright
Go to sleep
And I just might
Cry a little through the night

Here alone in this room tonight
I don’t care which sex so long as you’re alright
Boy or girl
You’ll be all my world
As I sit all alone in your nursery
You can’t ever know what you’ll mean to me
Or my wife
You are our life
We’ll make no plans so long as you’re happy
You’ll learn how to climb
Whatever obstacles that get in your way
You’ll clear them in time
Just be yourself,
Give me a kick
To show you’re alright
When you’re born
I think I just might
Cry a little through the night

    A fine piece of work, Stephen. I would go with in the last part to make it a little a bit more homey, I think I might cry some,
    through the night. But, that is just my suggestion for rhythmic flow. Just a songwriters take on this. It's sort of a song, don't you think? (Report) Reply

    a life has come
    and his cry is the proof
    it is to be celebrated
