The homecoming

‘…today? He’s leaving?’ I heard them talk. And then I knew it
was my last day there.
My heart
filled with dread. ‘Outside’ was a strange world – busy, crowded, scary. ‘Inside’
was warm, comfortable, safe.
Then I saw it – a tiny face, a tiny happy face. And two larger
ones .. eager, worried.. happy too. Back to the tiny face. Fascinating! She
stared, blinked. Suddenly she smiled. I felt all warm, warmer ever than I’d felt
in my cocoon.
Then, I was smiling too.

Oh yeah I was getting out of the NICU. My twin was waiting. I was
going home.
