Nothing could have prepared
Your heart to open like this

>From beyond the skies and stare
The echo arrived inside you
And started to pulse with life,
Each beat a tiny act of growth
Traversing all our ancient shapes
On its way home to itself

Once it began, you were no longer your own
A new more courageous you, offering itself
In a new way to a presence you can sense
But you have not seen or known

It has made you feel alone
In a way you never knew before
Everyone else sees only from outside
What you feel and feed
With every fibre of your being

Never have you travelled further inward
Where words and thoughts become half light
Unable to reach the fund of brightness
strengthening inside the night of your womb

Like some primeval moon
Your soul brightens
The tides of essence
That flow to your child

You know that your life has changed for ever
For in all days and years to come
Distance will never be able to cut you off
>From the one you now carry
For nine months under your heart

May you be blessed with quiet confidence
That destiny will guide you and mind you

May the emerging spirit of your child
Imbibe encouragement and joy
>From the continuous music of your heart
So that it can grow with ease
Expectant of wonder and welcome
When its form is fully filled

And it makes its journey out
To see you and settle at last
Relieved, and glad in your arms.
