A Poem for my Second Child

"Are you in there, Little One?"
last night I thought,
before I closed my eyes to sleep.

But no, you weren't
this morning I discovered,
and sad thoughts, in my mind, began to creep.

The timing would have been perfect
lately, I had been thinking,
but, it must be so, that God has a different plan.

"I know You know best"
at prayers I told the Lord
"I will do my best to wait... and understand."

"But oh how I long for you, Little One."
at times I whisper in my mind,
when I hold your sister close - so big, soft and warm.

I'll wait until that time
whenever the Lord grants it,
and rejoice when I learn, inside you have been born.
