When something new is on the way

by Bethany Lee

Sparkler in a hand with blurry lights in the background

In the last hour before giving birth
When pain blazed high
and shadowed everything
beyond its brilliant flare
I couldn’t remember why
I was giving my life away

I lost hold of all I thought I could keep
Lost all hope for what was to be
The knowing of what I had come to do
Turned to ashes on the fading embers
The one within me remembered
The one within me remembers
