“A New Life”

I’m awaken this morning
By a woman I love
Have something to show you
She says with a smile

Is it good, is it bad
I asked with unease
Have to come look
You must come and see

She leads me by the arm
For awaken, I just am
Into my office
In front of the computer I stand

There on the screen
Much to my surprise
Are a few tiny words
And the picture of a little hand

I blink in surprise
Fully awake I now am
Slowly read again
Then take my wife by the hand

Is it true? I ask
Is it really true?
Yes! She says grinning
You’re gonna be a dad!
