  This is your first and you have been wondering too
If you will be as good as a Mother, as your Mother has been to you

With each hour and day you canít believe that itís growing inside
With nerves of steel you think youíre done your best to hide

As each month have been going by, you keep thinking as if youíre behind
You canít help wonder, what am I going to do with a baby, stays in her mind

Youíre unsure but you really want to know, if itís a girl or boy
At the next ultrasound, that you get, the picture shows that itís a BOY

As the day approaches, the nerves are getting short
You know itís time and head to your designated spot

With mom at her side, holding her daughterís hand, itís getting closer for the new arrival
Your going to find out what UNCONDTIONAL LOVE is, it will be a LOVE you canít believe

At the hospital, they prep you for the c-section because the hips are not setting up naturally
As the doctor cuts you open, then removes him out and passes him to you; you take him in your waiting arms and begin to cry

She canít help but tell mom, youíre so right; I have a feeling for him, which I canít explain
I know that he will never be just something so plain

I now understand a Motherís LOVE
It soars much higher then a dove

Although I've never been a mother, you bring out the essential mothering instinct in a woman. Continue.
