My baby's not a library book,
so she's not overdue.
My baby don't take long to cook,
coz she's not veggie stew.
My baby's not an elephant,
and I'm not fit to burst.
The time and date aren't relevant,
we're blessed with days, not cursed.
My baby can't read dates as yet,
because she's very new.
So there's no cause to fuss and fret,
if she don't come on cue.
So stop your worry,
stop your asking,
there's no hurry
in this golden pregnant time,
this pause, which is just hers and mine.
You leave us be, we are just fine.
