I will always recall

I remember every feeling every second Etched in my memory it will always beckon As though it was yesterday vividly acclaimed I knew my life would never be the same But I was ready when the news was given to me The doctor “said you are pregnant” what to see? She showed me the written proof I jumped in the hall almost hitting the roof My dream came true, my wish, and my bliss God had heard my prayers I feel his wish After many years of crying, doubt and sighing I was to become a parent no more trying I rushed around like a women that was smitten Nothing could stop this gaiety, glistening Now I need to buy books on pregnancy Baby names, and good diapers with absorbency Paint the room blue or pink trim? Change the light switches to dim What a whirl win of thoughts and ideas Now caressing my face were happy tears So on went the days turning to weeks Closer to the day I could hardly see my feet The time had made its approach Two weeks early its time to get coached She made her arrival nearly 14 hours later My baby girl, no feeling could have been greater (Inspired by Gareth James "Best day of your life contest"!)
