Just Beautiful
Author: LinzAy


Many changes in life are unintended
Many actions creating consequences unexpected
April 1st 2009 changed my life forever
Creating, at first, thoughts of a storm I’d have to weather

In just a moment I felt so many different things
With thoughts of cribs, baby clothes and teething rings
I cried and I hurt because I felt so alone
Dreading the situation and having to face it on my own

I first acknowledged you as my “Beautiful Disaster”
Something I didn’t want to acknowledge as my heart beat faster
I cried for a while, and then I cried some more
Feeling as though I somehow always messed my life up by choosing the wrong door

I felt guilty for crying and having thoughts of sadness
But for a month straight couldn’t let go of thoughts of madness
But May 8th 2009 brought with it a new attitude
I saw arms waving and legs kicking and acknowledged you

I accepted you on May 8th as my baby who I would soon hold
I put your picture on my phone…now you’re just “Beautiful”

------- Author's Notes -------

A new chapter in my life has just begun...
