what I missed

nothing in the wind.
rapid movement,
to where we stand.

movement in my belly
7 months,
will grow to seven years.
need to take it in.
need not move,
cannot breathe.
I will miss it all.

from birth,
to teeth,
first words spoken.
wobble legs to get,
that first step.
kisses, hugs.
will I be able,
to be the best
for her.

Time will share,
time will know.
time will reveal it all.
that day.

Etain...Curious though you may be about time, 7 months, 7 years or 7 decades from now, the truth is that nothing is revealed all at once. simply moment by moment. That is the way we learn our children as they learn us. It is as it should be. Stay in good health friend.

Thanks walking man, sometimes I just want it to stand still as I miss so much. Then I want it to go fast so that she can be born so I can see her face. It is hard I am in the home stretch now, about ten weeks give or take, and my impatience takes the better of me. Then sanity says she needs to take her time, she wants to come out perfect:)

Hope you take care.

Experience every moment, commit it to memory. For it will quickly pass.
