When I was much younger, I never wanted them – was too busy.
When they arrived, slowly, separately, differently:
we were startled by what Life does to her babies –
dear God, why ?
Who abandoned a blind child, what happened to this
little girl with a scarred knee .. today she grins at me, says,
‘Never mind Ma, they did not know what they were doing,
we have each other,
Here are these days when I write and write –
when Love is too much to bear.
Our first daughter born ‘ naturally’,
the girl with the happy knee and,
with angel eyes.
( Never be afraid of Life when It meets you with arms opened wide )
