I took my first breath
a cold, sharp gasp
bursting into the world
terribly bright and warm 
I made a fist 
around your finger 
holding on
The first words I heard
Were yours 

I took my first breath
a dark, smoky feeling 
drowning in the world 
wonderfully painful and dark 
I made a fist 
gave you the finger 
hanging on
all the words I heard 
Were mine 

I awoke 
and took my first breath
a cold, startling gasp 
breaking into the world 
Terribly bright and new
I make a fist
around your finger 
I hold on tight 
And the first words I hear 
Are yours
