Nothing could have prepared me,
although I thought that I was ready.
I had months to peruse and ponder,
feathering my nest, feeling excited.
And I wasn’t sure, but I thought I could;
I was up for the challenge…baby on board!
Taking care, eating right, cradling
you carefully, everywhere…day and night.
Some days held doubts, I was sure that I would fail,
who did I think I was to be taking on such a task?
No turning back, and I didn’t want to,
I was devoted to you and would do my best.
