Here I Am Mom
As a young girl, I struggled thru this night of fright
I pled,begged and cried to the doctors in white
Then finally the most precious cry on this earth
My firstborn's arrival, proclaiming his birth.
Later, I lay so relieved and at peace
My heart unprepared for what I would see
Then gently, she placed him, his face toward mine
And I tell you my friends, my heart changed for all time.
