I look into your beautiful eyes

and see a wisdom looking back at me

that seems somewhat impossible.

No longer are you tiny and fragile

sleeping on my chest

smelling of sweet milk and powder.

But running to my arms

with scraped knees

the smell of fresh cut grass on your clothes

and dirt in your hair.

"Has it been 2 years already?"

I say to myself in amazement

as i stare down at you

while you sleep.

I put my hand on your chest

and thank your heart for beating

i listen to your breath

and thank your lungs for breathing

and i kiss your forehead

and thank you for loving me

in a way that no one else ever possibly could.

Your daily motivation...

hugs, cookies, and sponge bob

remind me

not to take myself so seriously.

Sometimes i look at you

and pray into the universe

that you will stay sweet,

loving, unburdened, and happy.

That your little heart

will never know pain, or fear,

or pressure.

Prejudice, hate, or ill intent.

Stay sweet dear heart.

And if nothing else,

carry this with you...

that I love you.

I love you for who you are,

and for whoever you become

and for whatever you wish to be.

Just know

that if there is a time

when you feel you can count on nothing else...

you can always count

on my love for you.

Love,

Mom

In a world without rhyme,

a heart without time.

A love within you,

bleeding your truth.

Beautiful words to feel,

knowing this is real.

Finding a way ti you,

in everything that I do.

Touched by an angel inside,

holding my heart as I cry.

Taken away from the pain,

hiding with you in the rain.

Love has no reasons to fade,

in everything hope is made.

Letting in breathing out,

true love without doubt.

Tears of joy bleach my skin,

cried from this start to end.

Making my way back to life,

holding your love deep inside.

As I let go of my fear,

I always know you are here.

Lay me down one last time,

without reason, without rhyme.

Johnny Love

Gorgeously said, Pink Umbrella. I've thought those same thoughts so many times in raising my daughter. I still do, because they always remain your baby. Very tender, loving and relatable to all parents everywhere.

awwww i bet you wish he would just stay young forever. cuz he will know all those things one day as he grows older, but you as his mom have to teach him how to handle it and teach him right from wrong. im sure he will grow to be a great man. and proud of his mother. and i like his name!

your right Nikkij504gurl, i do wish he would stay my little guy forever. maybe ill stop the clock when he gets old enough to tell me his thoughts and feelings. i cant wait for that. i want him to be like my brother, no embarassment in wearing a shirt that says "i love my mom" my brother takes my mom to the movies and everything. well, hes not a mommas boy, he just loves and is friends with our mom. thats what i want adon to be. i love my little boy so much. he actually fell asleep on me about a month ago. now, hes alot heavier than he used to be now that hes two, but didnt i sit there for 45 minutes before i put him in his crib! just because im so small, and hes getting so big, and i know that him sleeping on me will go away forever, and i just missed it. :) oh well, my one and only little man!
