The Gift - Poem by Siyabonga A Nxumalo

I can't imagine the
Hardships you went through.

The hormonal changes,
That came with mood swings,
The cravings and
The short temper.

Swollen feet and a
Huge stomach...
Ha ha!

The hour is very close love,
The days are long
And the night tiring.

The gift is coming,
Very soon.

    Though a baby comes with a little irritation whilst on the womb. Nothing beats the joy of feeling the kicks of tiny feets from the womb. Plus the excitement of holding him or her for the first time. Simple and sincere, well i love it! (Report) Reply

    This poem reminds of an prologue, as it sets the scene and the reader wants to more after the final line. (Report) Reply
