I look right
I say welcome!

To a bruised infant
Named Marc

A newborn family

Wide-eyed parents
Awestruck grandparents
Aunties and uncles
To dote and devote
Their time and arms and kisses


For a remarkable baby
For Marc.

Hello and welcome!

I look left    
I say farewell.

To a glittery being
Named Glamdrew

A bereaved family

Tear-stained parents
Defeated grandparents
Nephews and nieces
To hold and behold
His heart and body and lipsticked smooches


For an indomitable spirit
For Andrew.

Goodbye and farewell.
