My girlfriend has been talking

about our babies.

I must admit the subject

makes me alarmed.

She wants a big family

of strapping lads, quite soon.

Our wedding day should be

intimate, maybe on the beach.

My sister will be maid-of-honour.

This is all petrifying.

I sincerely adore my girl,

with all my heart,

but marriage is scary.

I had hoped we’d travel,

do liberal things.

But I always knew

she was a nest-builder.

Her absolute devotion

makes me feel warm

and whole. Maybe

I should be glad

it’s this way.
