Preemie, Please Stay Alive.


Before the twilight of your existence you slipped out of me

Before the porter was done forming your bones you pulled out of reach

But that’s OK, because I loved you before I met you

And now that that you have come to share this existence, I’ll let you

I see how you sleep every night In your warm glasshouse

I see The tick tock sound of your heart thudding against your tender chest

Slowly, slowly, yet ever so resiliently

I see how you cling

To this life you’re so much in a hurry to be

I see fear frozen in mummy’s heart

I see tears frozen in daddy’s eyes

I see the doctor hawking tired lines

All Praying: “Preemie please stay alive”

I see how they look at you

With mocking eyes and measured scorn

I see all the questions in their silent stares

I see the unbelief stacked in their glares

But while the world sleeps at night

The caterpillar becomes a butterfly

On this day to you we pray

You find all the reasons to stay

And to you we swear to give

All the love you need to live

I see fear frozen in mummy’s heart

I see tears frozen in daddy’s eyes

I see the doctor hawking tired lines

All Praying: “Preemie please stay alive”
