The days felt longer
Each day our love grew stronger
Burning in my body
Threatening to take me over

Then the sweet release came
When I finally lay in the sweet comfort of your arms
We slept long
Just to feel the warmth spread

And as we lay
Something in me changed
I was no longer empty
But I felt so full of things I hadn't known

Love
Trust
Belonging
Need

Then I felt something new
A life just beginning
A creation of you and I

So I cradle your hand at this altar
And I cradle your child in my arms
I could not ask for more
For we are together at long last
