Sitting on my eggs

I'm sitting here
On my nest
More accurately
On my eggs

I'm praying
I'm waiting
I'm sitting
I'm loving

My eggs will grow
Life develops
I'm keeping them safe
Love envelops

I'm praying
I'm waiting
I'm sitting
I'm loving

I'm giving my all
I always will
I'm now a mum
Sitting her still

I'm praying
I'm waiting
I'm sitting
I'm loving

Can't wait to hold them
In my arms
These kids of mine
I'll keep from harm

I'm praying
I'm waiting
I'm sitting
I'm loving
