Eight and a Half Months

Once upon a summer day
with another in embrace
I spied my sweetling current lover
with one—not me—but with another.
I, whose stomach rounder grows,
once rosy face with anger glows,
who waited nights for warm embrace
now wonder how I lost the race.

Was it me, or was it him,
or is it more than us and them?
Is she prettier than I?
Please don’t let me start to cry!
The carpet from beneath my feet
is pulled, but there is no defeat.
I lift my chin and look ahead,
no need to cry, for I’m not dead.

A few more months and there’ll be two,
I’ve plans to make and things to do!
Move on! Move on! And cut his strings,
My thoughts turn to important things;
like baby beds and nursery chimes,
and memories of better times.
But then he smiles at me with pride….
his sister standing at his side.
