I dug this out for Eileen - a new Grandmother.

The Nativity - Feb 5th 1989 (1989)
(Remembering the birth of my oldest son - Damien.)

I watched you and had to swallow
My heart from crashing to the floor

Swaddled in my trembling hands
You taught me humility.

I froze the moment
Away from care and time.

I watched you grow each night
In the trashing of your bath.

I had lived to see
The greatest wonder of the world.
