Childhood’s Friend – Day Seven

Best wrapped around my shoulders,
Lady’s gown or cloak or wrap,
At the best of times your always there
Never leaving me when I’m sad.
Keeping me warm when I am cold
Even when it’s snowing and I’m outside.
Years have gone by, but you’re still here.

Written to sort of lighten my mindset for the day and also for today’s offering for NaPoWriMo (http://www.napowrimo.net/2014/04/one-week-in/). I was going to use what I’d written earlier, but it didn’t feel right.

This helped me to smile again.

Fear is a Four Letter Word

With so much going on,
I never have enough time
To find the comfort needed.
 
An early wake up call,
A mother in need,
Drive there as fast as can be.
 
Quick, take your wife,
Your beloved companion for life
To the hospital to make sure she’s all right.
 
Children are sleeping,
Dreaming sweet dreams
Unaware of the fear surrounding their parents.
 
And here I sit at home,
All alone and yet not,
Praying that no more pain will come.
 
They’ve been through so much,
Five pregnancies, three of which turned out all right;
Please don’t let this one go like the first.
 
A child was lost so long ago
And though there have been three cheerful smiles since,
These two unborn lives might be at risk.
 
So I sit here,
Wrapped in my fear
And Pray that it will be enough.

One of my sister’s had a scare this morning in the wee hours. She’s currently pregnant with twins; they are her fifth pregnancy. She has three beautiful children, but her first pregnancy was a miscarriage. Her husband was able to call another sister of ours to come and watch their young children this morning while he drove his wife to the hospital. He let us know that both heartbeats are going strong at the moment, but is still very shaken.

Mom went over an hour ago to help out for the day.All I can do is to pray that they will be all right.
