I Am Whole


for Mira

In my secret life I am a mother

The baby that once was yet still remains

Needles pin my heart to clouds of hope

As I long to let go

of this dream that haunts me so

I wish to fully know

that I am whole.

Tantilizing whispers scorch my soul now

Baby showers, nursery rhymes, precious skin

Heaven kissed my life once with a shadow

Challenged me to embrace

Somehow without tiny face

Purpose burried in this place

and I am whole.

My tears have found solace in compassion

But grief demands to dig deep barbed roots

Divinely empowered against gripped weeds

I stand on solid ground

My Savior turns me around

I struggle but I’m found

so I am whole.

Ever in my heart I am a mother

Despite the blows of pain and fear and doubt

I fight to dwell in purchased peace and joy

He gently takes my hand

Seeks my faith in what He’s planned

Fills my courage cup to stand

for I am whole.
