The Precious Gift

Eleven years ago, I was at the theatre
You were still in my womb
It was opened and doctors were surround
I could only feel but not be seen
The doctor, a nice lady who chat with me
To deprive me of falling asleep with tiredness
Telling me stories about what is going on
Other side of the barrier which I can’t see
She whispered with her loving voice
That I am getting a nice baby girl
The sweetest words I ever heard
Brought a smile fading the tiredness
It has been exactly eleven years from today
Saw the little face covered with a blue blanket
Lot of hair grown long enough to touch the neck
The most precious gift which I ever got in my life
