Now what’s amiss?
No welcome kiss
That’s not like you

Usually
you will give me
a kiss or two,

Your smiling face
tears now replace
What is to do?

Why are you sad
or are you mad.
Now tell me true.

Did I offend?
I will amend
I promise you.

I am not mad
but I am sad
I cannot do.

All I would will
I feel too ill.
I really do.

Once out of bed
I vomited.
What should I do

What did we want?
You are pregnant
I’m sure it’s true.

We soon will be
not two but three.
I’m proud of you.

We will be three
a family
I’ll care for you.

So frown no more
smile as before.
Come kiss me do.

All will be well.
Who first to tell
I leave to you.
