Kissed by an Angel (a poem for Sebastien)

Kissed By An Angel

Tiny baby, wrapped within

Where no sin could ever rest,

A mother's prayer for skin on skin,

A prayer of thanks for being blessed.

Nine full months anticipation

New formation of a life,

Daughter, friend and wanderer,

Now true definition of a wife.

Welcomed pain, joyful love

From above, God sent a child,

Small and sweet, so innocent

But to live a little while.

At birth, I saw his life grow dim,

I cherished him, please don't go!

But four short hours brought an end,

My first-born son, I'll never know.

Many years have come and gone,

Life goes on, in light and dark,

And in my son's photograph,

Between his eyes he bears a mark.

My daughter arrived one year after,

Through the laughter, I remember this,

She was born with the very same mark,

A mark that is called an "Angel's Kiss".
