Take my hand...A poem

Take my hand and trust me now

I know how scared you are inside

But I promise I won’t let you go

There is no reason to hide

I will be here every step of the way

I swear I won’t let you fall

No matter what you do or say

Or how many times you bawl

Know that you can do this

No matter how hard it seems

It’s not something you would want to miss

Even if that’s is hard to see

You are not alone my beauty

Trust in your deepest instincts

For you are woman truly

Full of roaring brilliance

Let’s wipe away your tears

And find the right steps to take

There is no reason to fear

A wonderful mother you will make

So take my hand and hold it tight

Taking each moment as it comes

Soon it will be alright

When first you hold your little one

There are tears in my eyes. No one could ask for a truer friend.

I am honoured and proud that you are by my side. I love and trust that you will be there every step of the way, and take great comfort in the faith that you have in me... Though you know it has me stumped... I love you beautiful, thank you.

you my lovely pred8a are and will always be my dearest friend, I have great faith in the mother you will be as you have been my most loyal and loving friend.

I know your child will indeed be blessed to have you first as a mother than as friend.

Nothing but love for you...

This is so beautiful..I think every woman fears the pain of childbirth, eventhough they are thrilled to become a Mother..Thank you for a truly compassionate poem...

A truly beautiful experience becoming a mother but it can also be one of the most terrifying as the world you know shifts in every conceivable way.

But the beauty is that no matter how scary it can be the pay off is so worth it:)

A beautiful, reassuring pledge to see this feared experience through to the delightful end. There is no more magical and amazing occasion than that of childbirth and you have expressed the lead up to the event here in this committed pledge. Lovely words, nighthag, my votes to you.

As Fenneseed said 'A beautiful, reassuring pledge'

Childbirth can be a frightning in many ways. To have a good friend by your side can make all the difference.

When you hold that tiny new life in your arms, all the fear and pain are forgotten.

You sound like a wonderful person to be such a friend and make such a pledge.

thank you *blush* I can only hope that i will be a calm helpful influence as everything builds to the big event, but there is no where I would rather be than by her side when her time does come, to share the joy that all that overwhelming build up will bring
