Day of birth

Before I made my appearance
On planet earth
Bringing joy
To those who would receive

Bringing hope
To a dark world
Holding a promise
Of life restored

I was hidden
For nine months
Being woven

Invisible to everyone else
You saw my every form
How it developed
According to your blueprint

You did not rush
To create me
You took the time
A delicate creation requires

Then you introduced me
To my family
And many other people
All whom I would meet

I was a gift to them
As they were to me
I am a gift still
For meetings yet to be

Free Gift
