Pregnant Just Once
This feeling is one of dawn;
A vibrating, humming, coming-to-life worth.
The sun is flashing warm and true
To welcome the new and loving you.
I feel your excitement
As you dance within this cozy, tepid shelter;
I feed the hope of your pristine vitality
And then you grow ever-so-slightly.
My face is flushed,
My eyes they sparkle
With the thought of your emergent face
Crying out to me to embrace you And love you
And I will…oh how I will love you.
But for now sweet little one
Just rest there in your prudent place and rely on me
To sing for you and cradle the miracle
Of your pulsing, breathing, beautiful hope.
