From the first moment I learned of you, my heart became a spook

A little life inside of me, how amazed I was with you

I was excited at this time

But frightened all the same

Because a little life so precious to me could also bring me pain

Pain at the thought of losing you

Pain at the unknown of what I was going through

Pain from being excited when doctors told me I would lose you

Somehow you managed to hang on

Somehow you proved them all wrong

Entering the world almost 3 months early

 Yet you were so strong

Your tiny little body, so frail but oh so sweet

The little person you are becoming, a true miracle to me!
