Sleep for the newborn’s parents,
peace for the long overdue guilt,
food at times; more we don’t need.
More we don’t have at times.
The grandchild we can witness,
the day beginning with the best
of sunrises, a night of pain
ending with new life.
What could be more important
than being part of this?
Peace for the long overdue guilt.
Sleep for the newborn’s parents.
