Birth Day


How appropriate that it was raining
On your birth day;
It suits you - full of life force,
More than my heart
Knew how to hold.

I have had to learn
To hold you;
To be full without boiling over.

How appropriate that it was raining
The day you were born;
Washing me clean, I guess.
Making space for truth,
For you, and me, the most
True love I’ve known.

I couldn’t have known, would never
Have guessed, what this year
Would hold.

You.
Born in a winter rain storm
Bringing me to life
And holding me through it all.
