We both were sick, but I was weaker.
So cold was I, he lay on me to keep me warm
When my chest was still, and I stopped to breathe,
he kicked it with his feet, and I could breathe again.
Mommy would not give up on us, and told us so.
She lay in bed for weeks with family by her side,
praying for us to grow bigger and stronger
We could hear her voice, and it gave us courage
