Unknown Delivery

Waiting, wanting, impatient

On which day, which month?

The unknown

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
