Question: Does this give new meaning to "loves labor lost!?
25 1/2 hours of excruciating pain
at its peak it felt as though
a lighter held at base of spine
the nerves they did burn so!.

"We're gonna lose her, heart rate
dropping, we have to take her NOW!
Hold on," they screamed and in my
fear, I frantically did as told!.

Despite my grip on table lain
numbed hips fell off the edge
forceps mangled tiny head
emerged, bloody, cut and bruised!.

New life expressed in tiny form
with God's help created within
now out embracing life on her own
pain forgotten, my joy overflows!.

Too old now, no birthing of babes
instead poems are the fruit of my labor
while I find the effort no less painful
with same joy I welcome their birth!.

Love Found, Labours Lost - score is 1-all!.

Poetry is like an extraction of literal teeth sometimes, birthing of jammed thoughts that need a big push to see the light of day!.
But the result can be a joy as you say!. I am so glad the lil un made it ok!. And your still-creative body lives on to fight another day!.

Well done ma!.! Welcome to the poetic world "Ah seen da light"Www@QuestionHome@Com

Some of what we write is a labor of love, and pains us greatly trying to get it just right, but the finished product has a life of it's own, and elicits love from all or at least most who view it!. Wonderfully done, my dear, write on!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Oh, Ma! So true the analogy! The sweet release of endorphins following birth does happen when you know you've written something no one has said quite your way before! Www@QuestionHome@Com
