Shae O'Brien grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and it has bred her to have a love for music, coffee, the ocean, and rain.

During the day, Shae is also an English teacher, promoting the art of the written word among the youth of Austin. Her writing has been featured in publications such as Off The Wookie, AIPF Di-verse-city Anthology 2012, and TWENTY: Poems In Memoriam. She recently self-published her first chapbook, "Truths Unspoken", which takes the reader on a poetic journey through the passion, love, heartbreak, and rebirth of a relationship.

Time Awaits You

*This poem was written for a friend's baby shower. If you are interested in having a personalized poem written for your own special occasion, please email me: shaeopoetry@gmail.com.*

All time slows down as time draws near
For our sweet angel to appear
We wait with excitement and smiles too
Until we meet our blessing--YOU!

And precious dear, when you arrive
We won't alone be filled with pride
For today our loved ones have showered still
More joy for you than time could fill!

So darling of mine, prepare for tons
Of joy and laughter, love and hugs
For the one holding this poem now
Will love you long as time allows.
