Every midwife knows
that not until a mother's womb
softens from the pain of labour
will a way unfold
and the infant find that opening to be born.

Oh Friend!
There is a treasure in your heart,
It is heavy with child.

all the awakened ones,
like trusted midwives are saying,
"welcome the pain."

It opens the dark passage of Grace.
