My Dear Crying Baby

Newborn babyMy dear crying baby,
Don’t worry
I see through…
Just beneath your upset, tear-streaked face
Lies pure innocence
Just beneath your urgent, heart-rending cries
Lie complete and utter trust and dependence
Just beneath your immediate suffering
Lies relief
Just beneath my anxiety and fear
Lies joy
Just beneath my anger and resentment
Lies gratitude
Just beneath the challenge of this moment
Lies peace
Just beneath it all
Lies love
I see through all the way through
To love
I love you
My dear crying baby
I am here for you

Love, Mama
