Life’s Greatest Lesson

I would gladly trade places
With the women I see.
The joy on their faces,
Why can’t that be me?

They complain of stretch marks,
And sometimes of heartburn,
Their feet may get swollen.
Then stomachs in turn.

I would gladly trade places
With the women I see.
But instead battle daily
With Infertiltiy.

My months filled with charting
And days filled with meds.
I lie on white sheets
Of hospital beds.

But if I traded places
With the women I saw,
I’d miss life’s greatest lesson
Trusting God with my all.
