Song: "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" Roberta Flack

For my sister La'Shawn and my brother-in-law Marcus, who are expecting...again...July 2011. Every birth is a new experience...a new gift.

The night rolls in on a blue whisper.
A cool night breeze
dries the slow moving tears
that tracks down her’s face.
She is happy,
sad,
scared,
alone,
and in love
with her husband.
And he loves her.
He loves them both.
So does she.
They both will love her.
Are they ready?
Tonight they don’t know…
not on blue night number one.

The next blue night
they are lying in bed
together:
She and her husband.
It’s so beautiful.
He rolls over
and hugs them both.
IN love.

Another blue night,
calm and quiet,
she screams.
She cries.
Sounding off
loud like a trumpet
blowing up high.
What to do?
The blue night isn’t over yet.
There is still two
and a half
more moon turns
to live through.
Are they ready?
They will have to be.

Her name is Gabriel.
