Finlay’s Hours: ‘Like Birth’

A chronological collection of writing during my son’s first fortnight of life, in Neonatal ICU.

Like birth,
Progress is so gradual,
So incremental,
That you can easily miss it.
But there’s always that moment,
That moment of give,
That takes you a step forward,
Upwards and into
Something new.
A before and an after,
Clearly in view.
