TRANSFORMED

When I gave birth to a baby, I was reborn as well.

Pain was instantly forgotten

Fear of inadequacy

Instantly swept aside,

The moment she was placed in my arms.

A surge of motherly love

Rose up in my heart.

A sense of awe at

Tiny,

The miracle of creation.

Perfectly formed

Fingers and toes.

Startled by

Infant’s innate instinct

He rooted hungrily,For survival as

Nursing moments after birth.

Pleased when

Our baby quickly turned his head

Hearing the sound of our voices.

He recognized us.

Then,

Focused intensely on my face,

Bonding to me,

Insuring I bonded to him.

Transformed instantaneously

Into a mother.

A gift,

Pure and simple
