An Unexpected Mother

Positive results on a test I didn’t study for.

Not knowing how to prepare, not knowing what was in store

9 months to go and ready to see;

just how beautiful you will be

Time has passed and I can feel you move;

I think you knew.

Happiness replaces my fears.

I couldn’t control my cravings, my weight, or my tears.

My hormones are out of whack and couldn’t wait until you were due.

Lying in bed trying to sleep;

A promise was made I was going to keep

Don’t give up no matter how hard it will be.

It’s an honor to watch her grow right in front of me.

She will need me to be strong and I hope she sees.

I wasn’t prepared to be a mother but it was meant to be.
