For Gracie

My belly full of heartache
Hormones, fear and pain
My tired hands caressed you
Time and time again.

Inside there was no turmoil
Just safe and warm and calm
Occasionally protruding
One tiny, tender arm.

How from that sterile room
Full of sweat and blood and tears
Came the one thing I’d been missing
And needing all these years.

All the months of waiting
Now on my chest you lay
Heart to heart now Gracie and
forever we will stay.

For Gracie
