I was born quiet and on oxygen but o.k.
My Momma gave me time to come,
she knew I would come in my own time
After hours laboring her first of 8,
tired, worn and waiting for Daddy,
she held her breath when the Doctor came
and told her of heart rate decline
Baby might be in distress-
spinal tap to numb the pain
There is a good chance we will take baby out
so breath and wait, but for now your o.k.
Momma knew I would come in my own time
just like I always do, now that I am grown
She had faith in God and me
she pushed on through uncertainty
I was born at eleven a.m.
breathing and purple, but o.k.
I was born where the nurse had an almost southern drawl
I was born in Oklahoma City, O.K.
