Birth Hurts

Mother and Father God
We loved you before
the great Womb

Remember

You agreed to the pain
before it started
You’re going to make it
Strong Oak of dark forest
Leaned on, borrowed upon
Limbs like iron, roots strong
We are the Whole
Cloud of Witnesses
We Love You
so much
You’re going to make it
We forgave you
before it began
You are
Forgiven
You are loved
We are so sorry
for the hurt
for the confusion
for the darkness
But We dwell
even there in
the Valley
You were never alone
Can you hear
Our voice
yet
You will
It’s going to work out
You are Ours
Our Daughters, Our Sons
We never left you but
for a crib cry night
to make you strong
We trust You
Your roots and fruit
will blossom in
the desert again
We promise
It must get darker first
It hurts so much
But the light is beautiful
You will see it soon
We Will hold you
in Our arms again
and again
You’re going to make it
