I am Crying

I am crying
tears of pain
as I push you
into the world

I am crying
tears of love
as I hold you
for the first time

I am crying
tears of relief
as I see how
healthy you are

I am crying
tears of wonder
as I gaze
into your eyes

I am crying
tears of pride
as you nurse
at my breast

I am crying
tears of joy
as your father
wraps you in his arms

I am crying
tears of exhaustion
as we sleep
side by side

I am crying
tears of excitement
as we leave the hospital
and go home

I am crying
tears of anticipation
as I see our future
through your eyes
