Unfinished Swing SetJust another day in May,
As my mother scuffled to the kitchen,
Eating for two now.
Frozen yogurt by the pint,
Just like the past 8 months of her pregnancy,
The phone rang,
She fell to her knees,
Then pulled herself up again,
She had to be brave today,
This was not just another day in May.
