Waiting  Empty Waiting

Post  Sue McDonald on Tue Mar 22 2011, 21:40

Sitting in the waiting room
husband by my side,
waiting for our daughter
to give birth with pride.

My mum is in the birthing room
solid by her side,
holding hand and breathing,
soothing pain inside.

Her partner watching proudly
as contractions get so strong.
''It's OK sweetheart, hold my hand,
doing well, it won't be long.''

Mum and dad-in-law
standing with their son,
soon to have their first grandchild,
looking forward to the fun.

Wait in anticipation
as I write these words,
so many feelings through my head
though only my heart heard.
