you are but a tiny thing
barely four inches of existence
with blood and body I carry
but have not yet seen.
For a decade now, I’ve prayed for you
to one day become a part of me.
You are part of two,
two that love and cherish each other
who love and cherish you.
Whether you are to be
a wild-haired princess;
free spirited, huge-hearted,
brimming over with adventures
a benevolent prince,
eager for knowledge,
with enough wisdom and love
for a hundred men
Whether a princess or a prince,
We wait for you with barely constrained
impatience, and so, so much hope.
