This little one is all of a rush

desperate to be out and about

to meet and greet her nearest,

Her dearest family…

All agog and yet ready

to rise to the challenge

To surround her with love

and sustenance.


Too soon she will be here

And all things will change

Perspective modified,

By the sight of our little tot.

I am weary from the long lost day

But anxious, so worried i can barely breathe

And all the while feigning calmness,

Bottling the tranquil terror

That beats a bold discordant drum

Within my aching heart.
