Featured Writer: A.M. Torres

Baby Boy

I thought those were tears

When he brought you to me,

Your cries sounded faint

As I passed out again.

Oh, sweet baby boy

We waited all night,

My pain from induction

You were quite the sight.

You burst in the heat

On that summer day,

The incision hurt

But you’ve made your way.

You were sweetly wrapped

The adorable hat,

My precious newborn

Your mother loved that.

They all watched you

I could barely stand,

It could have been rough

You slept so well.
