Total Perfection - By Robin Zaborek

Submit Your Inspirational Story
Along the lines of the "Chicken Soup" stories, RMDSA would like to inspire the world with our own heartwarming stories and words of wisdom.

Submit your story.

A beautiful child came to me
In a bundle of swaddling pink
They said it was sad news
What was I supposed to think

There were tears and anxiety
In a dark, beeping hospital room
Uncertainty, pain, panic, fear
And so much doom and gloom

But others just see qualities
Characteristic features
Medical anomalies
Hours and hours of therapies

They promised me loneliness
Shame, grief and heartache
An unrecognizable life
"It was just a horrible mistake"

I'm amazed at her sweetness, though
I ponder it as she sleeps
When she dreams in my arms
My heart dances, skips and leaps

There's no human devastation here
She's total perfection!
She's a divine plan
An undiscovered constellation

Oh, my goodness
That precious little face!
Her velvet skin, sweet baby smell
This child is no "mistake!"

Painted with a heavenly brush
A masterpiece from above
The untrained eye has trouble seeing
She's a cipher that spells love

As I release my unfounded fears
I'm just starting to understand
All the mysteries this child holds
In her creased little hand
