To my babe,
These moments are wonderfully hard.
Exhaustion grips at my eyes, yet I'm wide awake
I watch your jaw move as you suckle at my breast
The only place you want to sleep tonight
I cherish these moments, and yet wish they would pass
Then you reach out and stroke my face and i want time to freeze
You're growing so fast little one, it's a pleasure to see
I'll keep holding you close, as long as you'll let me
We can sleep together, or sleep apart. Whatever you need tonight, tomorrow, forever.
For I know one day you wont need me the same.
I still cant believe I get to watch you unfold
Into a complete person all your own
Watching you change everyday has been my life's joy
I will treasure every memory, constantly shoving the camera in your face.
You don't stay little for long and I want to remember
So when you're grown I can still feel your hand on my face, your breath on my chest
As we sleep together, heartbeats in sync.
