Quiet Tears

by Bob O'Meara

miraculous moment

one body, one soul

conception, reception

He whispers hello

bone of my bones

flesh of my flesh

two became one

one became flesh

tree of knowledge

tempting indeed

precious little one

unwelcome seed

cradle of love

home for a while

tears on a pillow

unable to smile

Dismembered, remembered

no body, one soul

rejected, unprotected

He whispers hello
