At first it was unreal, seemingly a dream,
Is there really a little person growing inside me?
In my heart, I was overwhelmed with a sense of joy,
I began planning- Jayla for a girl, DeAndre for a boy.
I dreaded all the sleepless nights I was sick,
But anxiously awaited your first tiny kick.
In my mind I feared the pain to come,
But it was forgotten when I discovered I would have a son.
Daddy painted the nursery, mommy bought you toys,
We wanted everything just right for our perfect little boy.
Then the time came, one foggy night,
I've never known such excitement, suspense, and fright!
When I finally got the chance to hold my precious son,
I realized that my life had only just begun.
