Thankfulness in the Tantrums

03 Jul

When my child is crying in the middle of the aisle.
When I am weary but trying to smile.
When people around me stare.
May I consider,

That in that very same moment,
A child is being born.
A mother sits,
And silence is filling the air.
In a delivery room somewhere.

Me longing for silence.
Her longing for a cry.
Two women questioning,
Wondering why.
Our weary hearts, Her tear-filled eyes,
May our worlds collide,

So I can thank God for my crying child.
