Tiny New Arrival – Written Thursday 18th September 2008 (Aged 33)

Tiny New Arrival

i saw the baby last night
just a week old
a life just waiting
for the world to unfold

i thought about me
rambling along in life
hanging onto the future
and losing a wife

i thought about us
and where we might be
that tiny new arrival
gave me absolute sobriety

i saw the baby last night
and thought about family life
i thought about relationships
and what is wrong or right
i held your hand
and wondered deep inside

i saw the tiny new arrival
the beauty of a new life
for our hope, it is the survival
and for our dreams, it must be the light
