    This piece is for anyone who has ever lost a child:

    WOMB-AN

    To the child born into the Spirit...
    To the sacrificial Lamb...
    To the Soul that will bear witness
    To the Womb-an that I am

    I ask you one last favor
    Please intercede for me
    Ask God to give me the strength
    To become the Womb-an I will be

    Ask Him to grant me pardon
    If I misunderstand the cause
    As I cry alone in silence
    Mourning the Womb-an that I was

    But tears won't fall forever
    For a destiny never meant
    Because I know that you'll be back
    To make me a Womb-an again...

    The story behind it is pretty interesting too...you never know when you're being healed in the midst of healing others.

    A very beautiful poem. As you said in your peace, tears won't fall forever. Thank goodness for the power we can find in prayer

    Peace
