One Summer

Writer’s Note: This is the hospital where I gave birth one summer day/night.

The excitement is all around
I hear joyful music and sound
‎Somebody is arriving
In this fine summer morning

But seems we’re waiting in vain
Anticipation’s a pain
Is she really coming soon?
In this summer afternoon?

‎It gets harder by the second
It seems I’m dying, I reckon
No more strength but keep pushing
It’s been a long summer evening

Now exhaustion is all around
When will a miracle be found?
Then she finally shines her light
In this beautiful summer night
