To my son


You waited, patient, in the wings, for the perfect time to fly.

Whilst I, on earth, tried many things just to pass my time.

I can’t explain, I only knew, that you were always there.

An old soul ready for new life, to lift me from despair.

This child I have, I never thought could come from inside me.

So wise behind those new born eyes

Brought my epiphany.
