Gestation: 25 weeks, 5 days
One year ago.
I hold my wife, and as I do, I see a look in her eyes; a simple love that I don’t feel like I’ve seen for a long time. I couldn’t even say how long.
Afterwards, we lie there, hugging each other tightly.
“That’s how I want to conceive our baby,” she says.
“Same,” I say, quietly.
I look across at her, her eyes sparkling, as she looks at me in that same way.
And filled with love.
“I don’t know what happened,” she says. “I feel alive again. I feel like someone switched the light on again.”
“That’s exactly how it feels for me too.”
I’m not going to question it.
There are things mere humans will never understand.
Just let it be.
