A moment frozen in time
when all the love the world is made of
converged into my heart,
making it grow and grow
till it almost burst.

A baby in my arms,
all my dreams come true.
A tiny hand holding mine,
a prayer answered.

Invincible, unalloyed, unbound happiness flowing through my veins, throbbing,
The world now could hold nothing else.

Life screeched to a halt, I breathed
the fresh scent of new life, and I saw
the years ahead, of tears and snot,
of gurgles, giggles and what not.

My second chance, to dream, to love,
wings regrown to soar high again.
Beauty in a bundle to behold
Joy packed in a tiny parcel
The world had become bright again.
