Haiku for an Expectant Mom

Note: I have a pregnant friend who is overdue and, unless something happened over the weekend, will go to the hospital on Monday to induce childbirth. I was running today and tried to remember the excitement and emotions of waiting to meet the person who has been veiled for these 40 nervous weeks. I wrote this. It’s an almost haiku, or haiku plus, with an extra line of 5 syllables.
Waiting on the joy of my
Life, I thrum in
