When the current bad news around us is completely overshadowed by a family member telling you of a baby on the way, and the feelings that provokes


I just heard the best news of the year
Don't fear, it's near
New connections, reflections, suggestions
But only you will know

I just heard the news of a new life
A new breath, a new breath
A new set of new hands

The first day of June
Couldn't come too soon
New seasons here, no need to fear

The warmth and the heat
We have a seat
Waiting for you, waiting for you
When you arrive

A sister
A daughter
A mother
A connection
A reflection
A place for you
