Giving birth

Giving Birth

Birth, birthing,

giving birth, Mother Earth.

The pain, the joyful pain.

Wave after wave, a tormenting refrain.

The waiting is over, to see you, at last.

Gift of the Goddess,

of ages past.

Ugly bundle, into life you are thrust,

so helpless, SO wanted

accepted in trust.

Now we’re together, and the battle is won

your mother loves you

my child, my son.
