1: My Midwife The first hands to touch me to break my first fall The first hands to lovingly guide me forwards Before any other, to touch my soft skin The first helping hand brought me out from within A hand never forceful, but there if I need it Such delicate patience and love to proceed me Lovingly keeping watch, as I first bloom Calm, steady presence holds firm in the room Keeping my mother, smoothing her through Angelic and graceful, that's just all you Discreet yet so present whatever may be Troubles or calm, I know you've got me This time like no other, we're given to you In love, complete trust I know we'll get through For you are the light, the grace we can't see The strong, able presence in our hour of need All my trust you have forever and more All my love you'll have far beyond We are connected as only can be A saviour, an angel my midwife and me.
