Perfectly Imperfect



When someone looks at you from the naked eye,

they wouldn’t have clue what is happening underneath.

They wouldn’t see the blood that still remains around your brain,

from where bleeding occurred when you were first born.

They wouldn’t see the vessels of your eye raising up,

instead of laying flat, which could have caused you to be blind.

They wouldn’t see the fact that you do indeed struggle at times,

with remembering to suck, swallow, and breathe when you drink a bottle.

They wouldn’t see the two holes that remain in your heart,

which the cardiologist hopes they close on their own.

They wouldn’t see the how your lungs just caught up to your size,

two weeks before you released to go home.

They wouldn’t see that you were born 1 pound three ounces,

and that’s why you are four months old and only seven pounds.

God made you so perfectly imperfect,

and such a beauty you turned out to be.

  1. I love this! Its sad and beautiful all at once. I have a friend whose baby has already had two heart surgeries. It has been a long road but their son is doing great.
