And I Am Changed

Awake

sounds of silence

Rays

warm

a conjugal bed

sweet embraces ~

Time allows

an abeyance.

Rising in panic

running

falling

running

tripping

held breath

gasping

running

disbelief.

Awareness

touching cold

touching blue

touching soft

blankets of baby joys

Thundering

happiness

Gone

Screams

silent

echoes.

Sounds

of chattering

and laughter ~

Another room

Another crib

Two

Remarkable daughters

with

needs

Their happiness

becomes

my world

And I am

forever

changed.
