The midwives urged the woman in labor and in tears
Please don't give up on him.
The poor woman amidst the pains,
Saw hope for her seed and held on.
A few minutes laterthe baby was out.
With a cry on his lips
He knew his journey just begun
a trek to the unknownand full of uncertainties.
The woman out of stresslay down quietly on her bed.
A few minutes later,
she sat up and asked of her child
Held him in her arms and with a sad look, she cried tears of joy
her tears fell on him as he smiled with hope
it was his first baptism of love
a water to keep the seed growing even in the times of difficulties.
Take the child,
she handed him back to one of the midwives and went to sleep never to rise again.
But with hope that, the baptism of love will guide her son's part in the darker world.
Now he's an orphan
But you are not alone
God adopted you a child.
