  • I made a decision
    that nobody knew
    It was my
    to let my baby
    go from in me.

    As I lay
    solitary in the night
    in the glow of a light
    a Daddy Longlegs
    flitted around
    slightly mad I
    chatted to him
    thank you for
    your company
    dear friend.

    Then an apparition
    came to me -
    My babies brown eyes
    told me ‘fear not
    you will be safe
    and I will be free’.

    Then all was well
    his body was ready
    and he glowed
    with health; he
    could breath the air
    by his own little self.
