    Birth

    I was born in the dark of night.
    My mother named me Light. The Light of Dawn that comes after dark nights.

    I was born in the dark of night.
    My mother named me Joy. The Joy that comes in the morning after weeping has endured for a night.

    I was born in the dark of night.
    My mother named me Peace. I was an answer to her prayers. The pain of labor was worth it now that she held her darling child in her arms.

    I was born in the dark of night.
    "You are the best Christmas present I've ever received" she murmured to my face. My infantile wails rent the air and tears of joy streamed down.
