Disclaimer: No, just because I write a Harry Potter poem does not mean I know it.
A/N: This poem is in Lily's POV during Harry's birth and naming. 'Nuff said. Read on and review!
The final push, the final release
That brings forth my baby's cry
Soft tears of joy caress my cheeks
'Congratulations! It's a boy'.
Echoes over and over in my awestruck brain
Thunderous need, erasing all thought
To hold my child
Feel his tiny hands, touch his sprigs of hair
Does he look like me?
With auburn red hair?
Or his father, with an ebony mess
I need to know
I need to hold that life I bore
Nine months in coming
The mediwitch has finished cleaning him
And she turns, a bundle of blankets in hand
Beaming, as she lays the boy into my husband's arms
James; father and son
I see the noticeable tear tracks;
The glimmer still present in his hazel depths
That I know is still in mine
He leans in, mischevious smile I so love tugging at his face
'Meet our baby boy'.
And a small baby, fragile as porcelain, is laid into my awaiting arms
I part back the virgin white blanket
And gasp, the glimmer in my eyes spilling over once more
As I'm greeted by my own eyes
Staring back up at me, curiously
Below a mop of black
He's our baby, our love, our creation
I kiss his soft forehead
And capture- entangle- his fingers with mine
All the while James' palm strokes my ginger curls
What shall we call you, little Emerald Eyes?
What name is worthy of such a perfect boy?
I feel there is something big in store for you
You'll do great things,
I know this, in my very bones
What name can be worthy of such fame?
Of such innocence, such beauty?
My heart whispers
Harry James Potter.
My special little
A/N: Ummm... review:-D
Oh! And check out my other Harry Potter stories; I've got a 6th year fic called It Ends Now, a one shot called Love of the Light Child that chronicles Harry and Dumbledore's last bittersweet words as Harry is dying after his and Voldemort's final showdown, and a Harry Potter/Touched By An Angel crossover fic called The Wizard's Angel. I will probably make many more stories as well, so be on the lookout!
Hope you check them out and thanks for reading!
