First Thoughts (and Fears)

By John SwanPublished 6 months ago 1 min read

I can tell you a million separate times

I'll say it a billion different ways

There are words I have said to you

Words that will never be enough to explain

For years I wondered

Just a few short months to prepare

Long, sleepless hours we waited

Precious few moments of notice I had

Will I do all that is needed?

Can I give all that I have?

Great responsibility lies ahead

Am I ready to leave my old life behind?

The seconds and moments

They all meld into one

The doctors move around me

Still I hear no sound

A single cry shatters the silence

Tears fill my eyes

Holding you in my arms

My questions answered

I'll do all I can

And give all I have

My heart grows more for you

My arms hold you near
