Until you were here

Before the sun was up I felt the trickle

So scared, I turned to him

“It’s time to go”

Every bump

Every turn

Felt deep in my body

And then there was a pop

A gush

A puddle

The pain that never came

My body didn’t work like that

They wheeled me away and sliced at my belly

Not what I’d hoped for

But still, you were here.

I cried

You cried

And you were mine

The perfect of the world

Was in my arms

I never knew how much love could exist

Until you were here.
