Happy Birthday Wil... You're 1 month old today!

My Baby Boy and Me 
Author: Unknown

It's three a.m., they're all asleep
and no one's here to see
as we rock slowly back and forth,
my baby boy and me.

His little head is feather light
tucked up against my chin.
I hold his tiny hand in mine
and stroke his baby skin.

The house about us creaks and groans;
the clock hands creep around.
He snuggles closer to me still
and makes his baby sounds.

I love these quiet hours so much
and cherish everyone.
Store memories up inside my heart
for lonely nights to come.

And all too soon he'll be grown up,
his need for Momma gone,
but until then I still have time
for kisses and for song.

Time for quiet hours like this
with him cuddled in my arms;
where I wish he'd always stay -
protected, safe and warm.

And yet I know the day will come
when this tiny little hand
will be much bigger than my own -
he'll grow to be a man.

But, until then he's mine to love
with no one here to see;
as we rock slowly back and forth,
my baby boy and me.
Thank you for the poem Mom and Aunt Dawnie... from one Mommy to another - we love our boys!
