Preparing Your Room

 Ashly Ash

We have been switching the two rooms upstairs and preparing one of them for a child.  Though this has not materialized at this point we are taking a step of faith and preparing the way.  No matter how our child comes (by natural way or adoption) we are longing for that day and treasure the journey along the way.

As I sit in the midst of all of this stuff

Some of the things that made me tough

Childhood memories are here abound

Dolls, tea sets, books lay around

I see my set of American girl dreams

The piles will never be sorted it seems

We are preparing your room and making way

Praying and hoping you come one day

Sooner than later the wait is so grating

Here in the process of never-ending abating

But this is here for you

All this is for you

New to you

Deciding what things are important for growth

Enjoying this time and making the most

Everything in your room will have meaning

Each single item has taken years of my gleaning

Surrounded by childhood and surrounded by fun

I laugh then I cry for a child I have none

We are preparing your room and making way

Praying and hoping you come one day

Sooner than later the wait is so grating

Here in the process of never-ending abating

But this is here for you

All this is for you

New to you

The prayers from this place are an arrow to heaven

May they rise the way my bread does when leavened

Until then I will prepare, a lonely woman lunatic

While going through every old childhood flick

Knitting in this room a blanket for future

Preparing for the day when I may nurture

We are preparing your room and making way

Praying and hoping you come one day

Sooner than later the wait is so grating

Here in the process of never-ending abating

But this is here for you

All this is for you

New to you
