From Embryo to Foetus

A gush and a gurgle surround my new home,

A poke and a prod, please just leave me alone?

Eager to check on my progress each day,

Will they just let me be, I will grow anyway.

***

A lump and a bump grow and then a new limb,

A guess I must look like a miracle within,

But those on the outside all seem to mislay,

The fact that they all started life in this way.

***

So certain that one day I will cause you some grief,

Through just giving birth, you will sigh with relief,

When it is all over, when I am good and ready,

Just enjoy me this way, take things slow and steady.

***

And when alone together, aft months in your womb,

Your arms, not your body, become my new home,

Together we take on the world now outside,

A team of two with you firmly by, and on, my side!
