Poem #1: For baby girl
I’ve been waiting
to hold you.
The little girl within.
I’ve been fighting, praying, begging
blaspheming, and sinning.
I thought you were my imagination,
But here I sit getting ready to meet you,
feel your skin, touch your hands, look
into the eyes I’ve searched for all my life. And say,
I’ve found you, I’ve found you.
