Laboring to push it out of my tummy,
Yelling hoarse for my Mummy
A hundred miles away from me.
I lay in excruciating pain that Friday
After the Doctor broke my “waters”.
White voices urged me,
Tried so hard ,
Tired I cried,
Let me go.
A voice rasped,
“if you’re done,
We’ll begin the C section”
That did it!
I deep inhaled and whale exhaled…
Amidst cheers out slid baby bathed in my placenta!
The most tuneful cry filled my ears
That sounded like alla…allla.alllaaa
Happily I prayed “Shukriya…”
They showed me an adorable doll like bundle
For all these months was in me cuddled!
I gazed amazed at the wonderful God’s creation!
Someone drew the curtains...
Suddenly the O.T. was flooded with sunbeams…
…beaming at my sunny boy and me!
Exhausted I snuggled in His arms.
Thanking Him once again for His lovely gift!
On that New Year’s Eve!
