.

He has just found out she's pregnant .....

embracing her from behind he cups a breast for comfort,

and together they hold her womb

in awe of the moment.

Holding her close he whispers of his love for her,

how excited he is, how proud

that she's carrying his child.

He tells her that in all their time together,

he has never felt closer to her.

 

Embraced from behind, she leans back into him for comfort,

and together they hold her womb

in awe of the moment.

From a distance she hears him tell of his love for her.

Distracted, her eyes are on the horizon

but her gaze is deep inside.

She suddenly knows what it may take him years to know,

never again will he be the absolute centre of her universe

..... she has just found out she's pregnant.
