I recall the first time
my ear pressed against the womb that contained you!
Your feet pressed back,
moving my head,
and stirring my heart;
You entered the earth
And my eyes beheld God’s glory
Confirming that true beauty can’t be contained,
And true love can’t be explained,
It exist beyond what the eyes can see
And hands can hold,
It’s the joy I felt,
As the nurse pressed your feet against me,
Setting into course a series of moments
Of you making an impression on my life.
I continue to be impressed daily
Pressing my ear to the phone
As you extend your legs
Against a new womb
Designed to bring forth
A beauty that will change the world.
Happy Valentines Day
