A Better Tomorrow


Welcome little one!
We are so happy you are here.
Let yourself be held and nourished.
Let yourself rest in the safety
of your mother’s arms.
Grow at your own pace.
See with those fresh eyes.
Stand and walk only when you’re ready.
Let your needs be known
and let them be met.
This world is a good place,
and you are divinely ordained
to be here in this moment.
Sweet little soul, welcome.
Let your light shine,
reminding us
why we hope
for a better tomorrow.

My twin sister, who lives in Hawaii, just gave birth to her second child, a son.  I wish I could be there, but hopefully my poem creates a wave of welcome that the child can feel. Birth is such a miraculous, marvelous experience; just thinking of my new nephew’s arrival sends fresh inspiration through my being.  May he have a good, long life.
