contractions prelude conception
forcing infant from womb
headfirst into a world waiting to embrace it
with careful hands it's received
it's believed
from first breath blessings will flow
but who trapped in the present
can truly know
if the future will be
burdensome
or
joyous
for now be content to welcome
a new spirit
sing/for a savior could be born
to suffer in our place
and fight battles for us
or maybe/it will just be a baby
and babies
are reason enough
to
sing
