The Stranger in Me

Who is this person who celebrates? Who sings with joy? Who laughs with ease? Who is this child? In this aging body?

What is the name of this child? What do I call this soon to be 4-year-old? Born on a hospital gurney, shocked into life, after being impregnated by the hands of a pretty blonde nurse, who kept the aging body alive by energizing, my heart, by her vigorous touch, until the child, was ready to emerge.

The child emerges back into consciousness without memory of the touch, and forever grateful for the love infused into my heart.
