Born Again

by Brian Francis

Tears were welling in my eyes
they swaddled her
and turned around
They walked to me
and held her out
I embraced her
in my love and cried
my tears,
they were tears of joy
Her eyes were dark
and blueish gray
Her skin was soft
upon my lips
Her breath was sweet,
she looked at me

My heart was warm
and my soul set free
I looked at her
as she looked at me
I promised her
that with every breath
I would lift her up,
help her succeed
A purpose came
upon me then
This little child
My new best friend
Had somehow healed
all of my pain
and made me feel
so young again
