It Lifts

The heavy veil of uncertainty laid over my heart is gone.


Easy breaths fill and empty the once swollen space.
  
The prayers come, float heavenward.

No longer alone, I lean into comfortable embrace.

Awake to the beauty of baby's silent slumber,
joy in the sleepy embrace of a no longer baby boy,
not merely a spectator but participant again in joy.
