    ~~LIFE I did not understand
    Never thought a simple shake of the hand
    Could be so grand
    Until I gave birth...

    ~~Casual conversations no longer seem casual
    Carpe Diem a more appropriate motto
    No longer look past my brother on the street
    Encouraged to be a part of the cycle
    Gave my eternal contribution to the world
    The intensity of unconditional love
    so hard to truly understand
    Until his Father held my hand
    as I gave birth...

    ~~Such a perfect creation
    from an imperfect creature
    The ability to produce life
    that's my best feature...

    ~~A purple sunset
    An autumn breeze
    Hot chocolate in the winter
    Fresh baked cookies
    My first kiss
    A roller coaster ride
    My biggest wish
    They all fell to the wayside
    when I gave birth...

    i've always wondered besides pain about the "poetic" experience
    of birth from a lady.

    There is.......

    Nothing more beautiful, then bringing to this world the gift of life....I think it is one of the most rewarding things we do as a woman. We are blessed to be the vessel for God's life.

    What Can I Say???

    As I read this poem, I relived my own personal experiences. You are right, nothing can compare to the joy of giving birth.
