Panic everywhere no control Afraid of the unknown or even the familiar Different faces watch them carefully A convulsion of the lungs high alert

Waiting, wanting, impatient
On which day, which month?
Excitement mingled with fear
Which emotion will win out?
Is this it?
Here it comes, here we go, here it is
It’s a boy!
Which emotion wins?
It’s a draw
A heady concoction
Never felt before and only once more since
When she arrived
