On Entry (In the eyes of a newborn)

It's all I know so far,
The darkness of these walls.
The distinctive sounds.
The rythmatic, gentle pounds,
Of mummy's heart beating.

Mummy moves, gently.
But each step burns,
I try to turn.
Patience is a virtue.
Inside my tiny head.

I'm hungry, my tiny tummy screams.
I can't make a single sound.
Mummy's love, so profound.
She touches me.
She tickles me.
To see her face, I struggle to break free.

Darkness. I kick.
Oh why am I making my mummy so sick?
A voice, calming.
Daddy is close by.
I want to scream, I want to cry.

I'm afraid. Mummy where are you?
Please speak.
Noises in their room
Don't worry daddy,
'Cos I'll be with you very soon.
