Universe to Melon

Danielle PettiComment

A little video and song of 8 months of pregnancy made by daddy to be :) - lyrics below

when I first first saw a picture of you
you were the size of the universe right when it began
just fractions of a second after the big bang
you were small

you were also an explosion, an explosion of love
your genes have been encoded but your name has not
and everything we do, from now on it is for you
you are loved

and now the universe is expanding just like mommy's belly
now the matter that makes up the stars is the same as yours
now the universe is expanding just like mommy's belly
and i know it must be cozy inside, i cant wait to show you the sky

when i heard your heartbeat beating it set the rhythm to this song
now these waves they travel softy to your eardrums being formed
there are 7 billion people in this planet we call home
and 100 billion planets in the milky way alone
and you're unique

you were the size of a lime
you were the size of a lemon
you were the size of a tangerine
now you are the size of a melon

you were the size of a poppy seed
you were the size of a kidney bean
you were the size of a chickpea
these are all things that you'll soon see

you were the size of an apple
you were the size of a pear
you were the size of a cabbage
at this rate it seems you'll soon be going to college

you were the size of the universe
