Lee Todd Lacks Member Write Showcase What Happens Next?

Written By Lee Todd Lacks

He handed it to me carefully
ever so carefully
with tears in his eyes
as he whispered
"Please take care of her."
before he scurried off into the crowd
I noticed the fragrance of powder when
I opened the bundle, along with a sweet,
newborn human smell.
She was softly babbling.
Remarkably calm
given all that she was going through
a baby
a beautiful baby
my world was hers
