I Am Your Baby, Mum Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

I Am Your Baby, Mum

Rating: 4.8


I am your baby Mum.
I did not come on my own Mum.
God's angels flew down to your womb
from the mighty heavens
and placed me in your holy womb.

I did not come on my own mum;
God wanted it so.

I was so happy in my new cave of love,
in your holy womb
and slept there peacefully.
The angles watched.
They prayed
to keep me safe always
till I will be born on the face of the earth.

They practiced heavenly songs of birth
to play on their golden harps on my birthday.

When I was sleeping in your womb
The angels used to come to me.
You did not know it, my dearest Mum.

I was happy to be born
as your belovedchild.

I wanted to smile
I wanted to sing
I wanted to play
I wanted to suck your breast milk
Until you were satisfied.
I wanted to see the smile on your face
When I suck all your milk from your loving breasts.

They were my dreams in your womb, Mum.

But on a cruel day
you decided to kill me.


The devils in the Hades
heard about your decision.
They brought the loudest drum,
played in the devilish rhythms.
All the devils came together,
came and danced in circles,
jumping and singing.
They danced in lines.
They danced in circles.
They danced on the toes.
They danced on their heads.
They sang the wildest of songs
and the devil drummers played.
The whole hell was happy
that you decided to kill me.



You know how much I cried?
You know how many angels cried?
Do you know how the whole heaven cried
on my day of death in your holy womb?

A moment before i was cruelly murdered
I saw the All-Powerful God crying helplessly.
