My Journey w/ Grief - The Birth

The Birth

The Birth

our
3rd
child
delivered
in
silence
no
crying
no
motion
frantic
nurses
move
swiftly
incisively
seconds
pass
seconds
which
seem
like
hours
my
heart
sinks
I
canít
breathe
tears
begin
to
well
up
suddenly
a
tiny
cough

he breaths
he moves
heís alive
I
give
thanks
to
God
never
imagining
that
18
years
later
our
3rd
child
would
once
again
lay
motionless
silent
but
this
time
there
would
be
no
reviving
him
