Iridescent Birth

With final agonizing push, their world

Flushed with a sudden iridescence

Accompanied by first wail…the child

Of promise made entrance amid

Tearful shimmer…parents’ grateful ecstasy.

I hold my breath, tears already streaming, prayers repeated silently.

I am thankful, proud—I love so big and hard my heart may burst.

This child is all I ever wanted—beautiful, smart, talented, dreamer, a good soul—and win or lose today, she’ll always be my joy, hope…my champion.
