A New Love

         
          My heart pounds and each nerve ending throbs with an undefined
ache.  Where has this feeling come from?  I don’t remember it being part of
me before.  Perhaps life was too cluttered.  Perhaps ability to prioritize
hadn’t been honed to its proper heights.  I don’t know.  But I do know that
the feeling is there now as my hands slip gently beneath the squirming,
warm bundle.  My grand daughter.  Newly born.

          My sense of smell is heightened and I breathe deeply the scent of
warm, milk sweetened flesh.  And again my skin tingles as electricity
marches up and down my arms and across my chest.  I’m sure my pupils
have dilated.  I can almost feel them as I drink in the wonder and beauty of
a new creation.  We gape at each other, she and I.  My eyes are clear and
intense.  Hers are vague and searching—the steel grey of birth still
keeping them from complete focus.  

          I relax as I draw this child deep into my arms and a heavy yearning
clutches at me with tiny, newly released fingers.  It is all I can do to think at
all—so intense is the feeling—the love.  As I move with the hypnotic
rocking of an internal ocean as old as time, I forget everything beyond this
moment.  I drink in every small wrinkle and fold, every tiny vein, every
minute detail and I am sure I will suffocate under the beautiful emotion.
