Poetry

Inspired by my 20 week scan today that showed Hefalicious fighting fit & fabulous. It was wonderful to see my recent illness has not troubled the wee one. I am also feeling better...the anti-biotics are doing their thing. Thank goodness.


For Hef
Do you know how many years,
I've longed for you behind the tears?
In my dreams you often came,
I touched your face & spoke your name.
With empty arms I would awake,
So heavy with familiar ache.
But broken hearts need faith to mend,
And Hope remained my constant friend.
Deep down within I always knew,
I'd find a path that led to you.
Discovering you were on your way,
Completely took my breath away.
I clambered from my darkened hole,
Elation tumbled through my soul.
The battles fought, the pain I'd knew,
You lifted, squashed and overthrew.
The sweetest gift I've ever known,
Your heartbeat underneath my own.
My precious babe, my Saving Grace,
I live for our 1st sweet embrace.

Seriously- do not make a pg woman cry! I hope you are feeling better lady. Do you know what Hef is yet- a boy or a girl- or will it be a surprise. I think its a girl.I expect an answer!

Good to hear you're feeling better.

The ultrasounds are a bit of magic, aren't they? I can't imagine what it would be like without those.

Lovely piece of poetry!

Congratulations on a beautiful baby. You won't be disappointed with that first embrace; it's out of this world.

Beautiful, all of it!

I've been asking about the boy/girl thing too..... will you please at least tell us whether or not you know? I keep picturing Hef as a boy because of the masculine nickname, but what if it's a girl? I'd feel so bad! ;)

What great news on your scan, and your poem is so beautiful. You had me sobbing. It touched me so much that I'd love to print it out for my pregnancy journal if you don't mind? Credits of course to go your way!
