*FIRST MEETING WITH OUR NEW BORN*

I have taken care of your mum,

Toiling and ensuring she get the best diet,

Being submissive at times to make her stress less,

Your mum now pregnant of you has done her part,

She has endured your kicks and blows,

She has moderated the appetite swings,

She has struggled with mood swings,

Just to keep you comfortable,

We’ve done scanning and proved you a baby girl,

We’ve bought breast pump and pads,

We’ve bought burp clothes and diapers,

We’ve bought enough beddings and clothes,

We are more than prepared,

Soon am going to be called a dad!

And she’s going to be a mom!

Just because of you!

I am waiting for that first meeting,

Whether it will happen it hospital or home,

Whether it will be by road side or garden,

Whether it will be on bed or carpet,

I am eagerly awaiting for that first meeting,

The meeting with my first born,

I know on your arrival you’ll cry,

To adapt to new environment,

I’ll be beside your mum,

With joy and happiness will carry you,

On that first meeting with you,

I’ll mumble thanksgiving prayers to God,

Then I’ll mumble another one to ancestors,

“May God bless you” I say with tears of joy,

“We love you” we’ll say as we hug one another,

I am waiting for your first meeting,

The meeting that will also introduce you to the world.
