~~~Inspired by my two sons, from whom I gather all of my strength to carry on.~~~
That's all it takes for me.
The chance to hold you once again,
You try so hard to stay awake,
To keep your eyes on mine.
But thumb and blanket win again,
you drift off one more time.
Holding you a few more minutes,
I admire my greatest work.
You laugh a little and sigh again-
I enjoy each dream-filled smirk.
What a privilege it is to be granted this blessing.
I never imagined before.
The love that abounds my life since you've entered...
Leaves me wanting for nothing more.
