We 3 Wait

This is all so surreal.
I know not familiarity with this feeling;
It's as though I'm watching someone else.
That happy, confident woman--face glowing with anticipation--
can't be me, can it?
The one whose heart--
once broken by infertility,
damaged by the death of a child--
is carrying her to dizzying heights of
There are no limits to what our life holds for us now
as we wait
for the wait
to end...
for the giant weight
to finally float off our shoulders
and into the sky...
to finally be able
to gulp in great, drawing breaths,
and to exhale,
knowing that
all will be all right
and we 3 will be OK.
