December 15


twenty-two years ago
our 14th wedding anniversary
Pennsylvania
you were born

the very best anniversary gift
ever
my December baby

rupture then fluid
reluctant to arrive
threatened c-section
i prayed
you came

 in retrospect
pattern

when problems present
pray
you come through

not only you
the asking brought
Him




(happy birthday dear Joseph, happy birthday to you.)
