Mei Mei Comes

The joy of learning of a pending new life,
the worry of hearing of a birth not right.

The angst of having a child alone, so far away,
parents unable to comfort or hold or tears to stay.

To pray for her and her loved one to be strong,
to hope the pain of the coming birth is not long.

For many the feelings of love are enough,
others the absence is tough.

But even in the most dire of circumstances,
a most beautiful moment dances.

The world opens to a moment of pure brilliance,
where all pain, worry and fear diminish.

Joy for the new arrival’s appearance,
her smile and self we all shall cherish.
