Elijah

Elijah

Knit together inside my womb,
Imperfect love made perfect.
A depth of love inside of me,
Unreachable before you.

Beautiful, unfathomable,
Miraculous and fragile.
Created life, by God’s own hands,
For me to shape and please Him.

I pray I will not fail you, son.
That you’ll thrive within my care.
I choose to love you boundlessly,
You’re mine now, for a time.
