I watch you asleep in your hospital bed
All these anxious thoughts running loose in my head
Why have you had such a hard little start?
With each challenge we've faced another knot round my heart.
When I carried you, all those precautions in place,
As they warned me of all the potential complications we'd face
As you tumbled and turned inside of me
Oblivious to the fact that you should not be free
Each concern they'd raise, each worry they'd impart
Just bound you with another little knot around my heart.
And then you came, and ten weeks on
I find myself back here, though it feels so wrong.
Your downy head soft, your breathing catches
Wires all around you, I sleep only in snatches.
And yet in the heartache, I know for sure
That you're in the hands of the One who can cure
The One who loves you more, even, than me
Who died on that cross so that we could be free.
So now as I watch you, I pray that you'll know
The healer who washes you whiter than snow,
Who deals with an illness much deeper within
Than infections and diseases; He'll heal us from sin
And so I entrust you to him in this dark
As you wind your little knots
That bind you to my heart.
I love you, our little Heidi,
Get well soon.
