I Laugh so I do not Cry

The tears still come

but I am not ashamed of them.

I can sympathize with his state

and the unnatural pressure

he must endure

as we figure out what is causing

his pain.

But when he describes the symptoms

all I can do is giggle

and tell him

every single eighth month pregnant woman

knows exactly how he feels.

Give or take the pain.
