Baby Coming Soon

Me I am coming soon.

I am so excited.
I am so excited.
I am about to be born.

I have heard the rippling of water in a slow moving stream.
I have heard my mommy’s loving and gentle lullaby.

I have heard the purr, purr, purr of my family’s big fluffy cat.

I have heard the whisper of the leaves rustling against each other as the autumn wind blows through the forest.

Now I will see what I have never seen.

I will see the doctor’s welcoming hands.

I will see the nurse’s soft, brown, twinkling eyes.

I will see my mommy and daddy’s loving smiles.

I will see my brother’s curious expression.

I will see the rays of the bright sun peeking through the venetian blinds.

Soon I will see what I once heard.

I will feel and touch the slippery stuff.

I will think, speak, listen, smell, and watch.

I will be smelly and stinky.

I will be cleaned up.

I will learn.

I will be part of humanity forever and for always.

This story is intended for a mom to read to her children about a new baby coming or another person could read it as well of course-The story speaks of the innocence and beauty of the new baby and there is a softness and sweetness surrounding the words-the people involved are filled with hope and faith and the future days, weeks, and years of the reality of harshness and disappointment is not yet evident and is concealed far away like a crisp leaf curled under a heavy rock and this leaf will not be viewed or grasped at this point in time.
