Fresh Breath

By Aparna Ajith

A miniature version of myself
began to grow inside me.
A new spring will welcome my offspring.
 
Your movements give me sleepless nights.
Your invisible presence brings contentment.
You move slowly and silently within me,
I yearn to see you move around me.
 
During my monthly check-ups, you remain silent.
When I get back home, you assert your presence.
I began loving you right from the start.
I long for the joy of watching you play.
 
Counting days to my unseen one’s arrival,
Craving to hold, to see, to touch, to feel,
My whole world waits to welcome you.
