Stepped Into Icy Water
Slipped a note within your blanket
Placed a kiss upon your cheek
Stepped back into the icy water
Prayed your life would be complete.
Observed the beauty of an angel
Caressed your fingers...tiny toes
Promised I'd be a bluebird on your shoulder
Kissed again your tiny nose.
Grieved...I only had a minute
Nursed you once upon my breast
Rocked and told you life's great story
Finding you would be my quest.
Searched more than a thousand faces
Thought I heard your voice upon the wind
Blushed and tearful...did I make the right decision?
Poured my heart out to my friend.
Stepped back out of the icy water
Adjusted the loving halo above your head
Greeted you with arms wide open
Tied again the golden thread.
