through the bleeding nipples

all through the nausea and the morning sickness
i held the promise of you dear.
i dreamed of you through the foggy exhausted days,
and thought of you through the sleepless nights.
i could hardly breathe through the anticipation
during the pains as you came out of me.
joy exploded through my soul
as i saw your tiny face for the first time.
i held you through the pain,
and through the soreness,
and then through the healing.
you smiled at me through the wonderment
as your world grew and expanded.
i loved you through the sweet tender moments of feeding you,
even through the cracked and bleeding nipples.
