Quickly, quietly to the upstairs bath

I retreat to prepare

Open the shiny package

In there lies my future, my hope

Will I be, will you be?

The sample is produced

Now it is time to wait

Minutes seem like hours

I listen to my breath

Not daring to consider what might be

So much power in that little plastic stick

After an eternity, steal a furtive glance

Dare to check the future

What might be



Swallow hard, manage a smile

Soon it will happen

My belly will fill with baby

Happiness will fill our home

Blink back tears


Like magic, a thin line appears.

Wipe the tears, blink twice

A new life has begun
