A Family Waiting [Natalie's Husband]

from A Promise by The Chairman Dances



I came home to find you head in your hands, hands on the table, and your belly showing from under your shirt. I came, I ran for blocks, as soon as I heard, as soon as I knew you weren’t OK—you’re five days late. I led you down, down each stair. Your palms were sweaty as mine. But I stole a smile then. We spoke of all our dearest dreams—oh, Natalie, soon we’ll be something different. The car was packed. We hit the road; we’d meet your parents there. I choked down each breath like a drowning man; a breeze was blowing through your tousled hair. Not long ago, I found you home: you’d changed, you were staring at the floor. I had something to give. You had so much more. I came home to find two girls waiting, a family waiting.
