Welcome To The World


My heart is pounding at the speed of a drum
Almost as hard and fast as the vibration of my phone
Phone calls from family members all across Chicago
Worries, cries, sobbers, and tears fill my ears
Through the other side of the phone
I myself have fear throughout my body
For I am hundreds of miles away from home
He has to come. Why isn't he here yet?
We're waiting for his arrival
Why isn't he here?
11 o'clock at night, when everyone's asleep
He's here. He's finally here. March 25th 2008.
Brown hair, brown eyes 9 pounds and 6 ounces
Phone calls now fill my ears with relief, happiness and excitement
The missing piece to our puzzle was found.
Our puzzle is now complete
