I can do this.
This is it.
Eyes wide at the unexpected warm burning, then relief as the sensation dulls to blend calmly into the background.
The constant, mild throb propels you downward and, finally, outward into waiting hands.
Peeking past the soft rise of an old abode slowly sagging and deflating, new life meets my downcast, expectant gaze.

Lifted upward to rest on warm skin, silence is broken with that first lusty cry and a softly emotional voice resonates to fill the room and forever repeat in my mind,
"We have a son".
