The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
This is a photo of the moment we first came face to face.
We’re neither of us looking at our best. I’m looking somewhat tired because I’d been in labour for 4 days and had very little sleep or sustenance. And you’re looking a bit worse for wear because you’d got stuck on the way down the traditional route and had to be hoicked back up again and out through my stomach.
But it was all worth it and I was so pleased to finally meet you. We made eye contact and just gazed at each other for hours.
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies, my love,
To the dark and the empty skies.
