"Finding Out" (CAGB)

Night settles on the day we met you
Stars rise over the moment
Making you real.

Morning light pours through the window
On another red day with you
Closer to leaving me.

Music laughs and cries in the tones of your voice
Felt only in tiny thrashing appendages
In the deep of blue womb.

Knowing this day would dawn like any other
I brace myself for your strength
And sweet, Sophie Salome.

This is something I wrote in June of 2005, almost 5 1/2 years ago.  This is from the day we found out Sophie was a girl.  Although, I'd say we knew all along.  We also reposted this during my pregnancy with Eleanor.  And, I have the urge to share some of my more painful writing tonight.  This isn't one of them, but I may post them in a few minutes.  My plan was to write something today, but my mind is preoccupied.  And I've been feeling rather defeated.  And these are as good as any, in that they force me to reflect and that feels so so good.

  1. I am thinking of you. Especially as we get closer to Sophie's birthday.
