Labor of love

It is confirmed

A new life growing inside me

I am speechless

It is product of love

Questions flood my mind

Fair or dark

Still mine

Curly hair like mine

Oh it does not matter

How tall or how much it will weigh

It is still my love

Girl or boy

A new life

The morning sickness

It will be over soon

Food cravings

My baby loves food

Soon you are

All over the place

Sleepless nights

My labor of love

The D-Day arrives

The pain is felt

I know you are eager

To meet Mom and Dad

It is a struggle

Laced with warmth

You never understand life

Until it grows inside you

My labor of  love

Gives me immense joy

It is my expression of love.


What do you think?
