My Precious Gift

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, August 30, 2010 Under: Poetry

I hold it in my hands,

this precious gift,

the one bestowed on me.


I didn't think I was ready

but how could I not be?

It was my destiny.

It shines so bright

so beautiful, glowing

from the joy it brings.

It makes me better,

it adds the missing piece

to the life I thought I knew.

It is a humbling honor,

a privilege, a sacred charge

better than I ever imagined.

And so here I sit

with this gift, so precious

and I grin from ear to ear.

It will not always be easy

but it will be rewarding -

experiences I never thought possible.

So I hold it in my hands

it feels familiar, safe, loving -

It is a part of me

now and forever.
