after every desert, a refreshing rain
after every night, a cool morning dew
after every battle, a reawakening
so thankful that you are part of my today
ever grateful that you continue to be a part
of my tomorrows



when you were just a hope, just a whisper
just a pulsing bean on a grainy screen
when you were slowly forming, daily growing,
as fast as my belly, appetite and dreams
when you were months, then weeks, even days away
you were so very much wanted
i pray that you will always feel that way
