Daughter

by Curtis Sethaler

I can hear the sound of your sentimental heartbeat,
Its sound echoes right out of its static filled womb.
I’ve seen your face, in a sound wave of resolution.
You moved your lips and they in turn moved my soul.
The feeling of touch through the skin of your mother,
I feel you push and kick and push me again.
Last night I had a dream where I was holding you closely,
A few hours from now a new life will begin.

I love how you bring it around to a moment imminently approaching where everything becomes more real. Well done Curtis.
