Granddaughter

In the moment they mentioned IVF
Ingredients mixed like an A La Carte Chef
The test the appointments, the travel to do
All to create a very special menu

The pain of injections, the stress for him
All to do before the conception prelim
A long hard struggle, heart on her sleeve
The trials and test just to conceive

As the months went by and the issue grew
Girl or a boy nobody knew
The tension rose as the time grew near
As she sat behind this massive sphere

When will it be, as the texts they came?
When would it be an event to Proclaim?
In the late morn of that Special Day
They pronounce the miracle was on its way

The arrival of this precious pearl
The joy to see this beautiful girl
I was allowed to hold, my heart stood still
A lump in my throat, eyes starting to fill

A father so proud “ best thing to happen to me”
The look in his eyes for the world to see
The mother so calm a gleam in her eye
A prize in life money cannot buy

As they leave the ward , out through the door
With this gift from heaven for all to adore
