For my Bees

We waited for Bumble and along Bumble came,
Bringing a friend to mop up the pain.
The days and the nights of heartache and tears,
Of treatments and theories and unspoken fears.
Like tipped dominoes we watched them all fall,
As others were taken to the pregnancy ball.
How desperately we wanted to join in that group,
To be smothered in cuddles and goobies and poop.
My sweet Bumble Bees if only you knew,
How grateful we are to finally have you.
Ignore all the hormones, they’re only here for a while,
They’ll all disappear first sign of your smiles.
I know we’re the lucky ones, far from the front line,
Holding these babies who are finally mine.
Can’t wait for the future to see how you grow,
And come back to us smiling grandbabies in tow.
Don’t hurry to get there it’ll happen too soon,
But I’ll never forget how we’re now over the moon.
It was worth all the struggle, the heartbreak and pain,
We waited for Bumble and along you both came.
