Evolution of a Poem

Martha

I thank you for your child
   Conceived in love
   And birthed in pain.
I thank you for having him,
   For caring for him,
   For loving him.
I thank you for not giving him up
   And for not giving up on him.
He is beautiful, lying asleep here
   On my lap.
I thank you for saving him for me.
