I named you

I named you

even before glances

were flavoured with desire,

even before

the thought of a kiss,

even from the first embrace

with greeting and promise entwined

you were there.

I named you

as thought turned to love

and lips, arms and legs

danced,

and the steady rhythm of life was shaken

to something trembling and new.

I named you

when first we knew

when disbelief became joy

and everything changed.

I named you

when I first saw your shadow

when I first felt your struggle

there – when first you cried!

I held you

bloodied and squirming!

for now..

and now..

You’re here!

I thank God

You’re here.

I named you
