Baby Mine


Oh Baby Mine, why do you grow so quickly?
You wore the new shoes only three times and now they sit on your dresser top, to small for your busy feet.


With each morning you wake a whole new person full of blossoming talents I have never seen before.
I am startled when I see your baby pictures.  Were you really that small?  How did this happen?


You sleep all night but I wake repeatedly to stare at your peaceful face.  Watch your chest rise and fall.  Hear the soft snores.
You need me for food, clothing, comfort, and love.
But while I watch you sleep, I realize how completely I need you. 


Don't grow up to fast, Baby Mine.
