    MOTHER TO BE

    Hello to you Mother to be
    Belly full of great expectancy
    Planted in your womb, seed of verility
    In a world of barraness, beacon of fertility
    Motherly nature to be unearthed
    Destined prmise to be birthed
    Miracle of Eve that God ordains
    As with you as it is with life, blessings come from great pain
    Your way is tribulation, and change due
    Adjusting to the new life growing inside of you
    Enlarging borders, making space, adding to the sum
    Preparing the way for what is to come
    Uncomfortable journey not to be postponed
    Trial and travail in an experience all its own
    Giving your physical resource; surrendering serenity
    And through it all, you'll be alright, Mother to be

    Hello to you Mother to be
    Full of promise and unheard prophecy
    Stretching the the limits of life in a coil to be uncurled
    Carrying within you one who can potentially change the world
    For a span of time 'till your term completes
    One creature, within her, two heartbeats
    Heartbeats that beat in times wild, in times mild
    Hearbeats that beat of mother and child
    Two lives in one, growing together with times persisence
    Though uncomfortable, a bond of love makes for a peaceful co-existence
    With a tender nurturing, given to be consumed
    By a life in a universe known as the womb
    Living duality, throught conception, sworn
    To grow, and later separate when comes time to be born
    But always inseperable the bond of love, born free
    Inherent in you, Mother to be

    Hello to you Mother to be
    About to give rise to infancy
    Preparing to endure an experience true
    A challenge experienced by many before you
    Contractions heralding a life changing event
    Committed to completion; a moment not to circumvent
    A reality of struggle and pain in bringing forth your little one
    Is the calm before the storm that you see on the horizon
    From your loins will come a future King of Queen
    An Idealist with ideas unforseen
    And extraordinary indivifual with wide reknown
    Or just an ordinary person with a mind sane and sound
    Whatever direction and affinity to which your little one goes
    The future is unwritten, and God only knows
    Wherever life takes you and yours, and to whatever degree
    Take God with you, Mother to be

    Hello to you Mother to be
    Soon to face an agony
    Of grimacing pain; way past the line of maybe
    Hanging on for dear life to birth a newborn baby
    Bringing out a new innocence, impressionable by influence
    Who will bear the reprecussions of wrong decisions, and reap the consequence
    Of learning many lessons throughout its lifetime
    With many paths to choose, before, during and after its prime
    Train up the child in the way it should go
    So when it is grown, it will know
    The differences between right and wrong
    And will grow to have integrity solid and strong
    Your pain will be hard, and you will feel real hurt
    When the time comes for you to bring forth life in an efforted extert
    And when new life is born, and the unbilical cord is cut free
    Your pain will be a memory, Mother to be
