Anxiety from something missed
is replaced with the joy of discovery
and disbelief that we have been blessed
with the miracle of life.
The joy of discovery
is replaced with the excitement of tomorrow
in anticipation of announcements and congratulations
for the change that you would bring into our life.
The excitement of tomorrow
is replaced with the horror of today
when the illusion of happiness to come
is shattered to slivers within mere seconds.
The horror of today
is replaced with hope for another day
and strength to start over again
for life must go on without you.
