She felt it one day
when the clouds were full of tears.
There was something inside,
wanting to get out,
wanting a life of its own.

She didn’t yet know
what her world was about.
Holding her middle,
she looked up
and tried to hope
that she could figure out
how to share her life.

It started with one night,
one sweet boy, one kiss,
one caress, one bed with
two warm bodies
cuddled close. And that

was all it took to change
her world forever.
