Your Birth Song

Oh perfect Cadence,
Who lingers in the warmth
Of Kate’s womb

Hesitate to resolve the song
Your turnaround slows the tempo
Dissonance shows no reward

As we anticipate the conclusion
Harmonic rhythm tells us
Modulation must happen

There is a different key now
Your inverted position
Turns the movement around

Such love was put into this song
Played from Dad’s hands
And Mother’s serene vision

Radiating with love and light
Your deceptive progression feels heavy
Having intended a different ending

We face the distant sound a
Familiar ending approaches quickly
It is not a transpositional equivalency

Having heard your birth song
Which still resonates in our hearts
We are left to contemplate

The different sequence is
No less or more important
As considerable effort was made

You teach us patience and humility
An unassuming strength in
Devotion and variation

You bless the whole of your shelter
By finding sanctuary in your parents arms
Your sweet life we now cherish
