Nine Months

by Michelle DaPonte Saslow

September 3, 2021

Author: Michelle DaPonte Saslow

Nine months of expectant waiting.

Heartbeats, flutters, expanding belly.

The joy of those 9 months.

31 years later:

Nine months of unexpected loss and grief.

Shock, numbness, broken-hearted.

A time of waiting for my lungs to expand

and my heart to mend.
