Just long enough to still feel those feelings
The joy, the excitement, the awe
That I did something so wonderful
So special and so hard as bring another soul into
My world, that world that was so imperfect even then
But still full enough of possibility and hope
That I did something so brave
But I did not do it all alone
Other brave souls surrounded me and supported me
And stayed beside me for the long road ahead
Can I just go back to this moment in time?
Feel the love and anticipation of something I’d never done before?
Feel the love and not only love but trust
Trust that love given would turn into love received
Can I just go back?
