Poem: The Centre of Your Soul

Faint lines on a pregnancy test,
To a scan photo,
Then a small bump,
Into a late night arrival.
It’s a quick birth,
Or for some a fight for survival.
However they come into our lives,
We’re instantly
Unconditionally infected.
And from that moment on,
There’s a bond,
Deep within,
Beneath bone,
under the skin.
Feeling inside the heart,
The centre of your soul.
As we get connectDAD.
