My Child, My Sweet

My child, my sweet
How I've waited so,
Impatiently to see you,
To hold you, to meet you

Carried you in my womb 
Kept you safe and warm
Fed you, read to you
'Til you were ready, full term

Yet on that day, of your birth
The same person I was no more
With your first breath, with your first cry
It was you who gave me life.
