You Are Little in My Arms, Once Again

To all the mothers out there, who sneak small moments, to pretend they are still little.

I wrote this small note to my son.


I stayed with you son, until the regular soft breaths of sleep prevailed.

It’s because I miss you that I’m here tonight.

And yet tomorrow, you will rise in the morning and walk independently into the day.

I’m glad of that. I am.

But right now in sleep, you are little in my arms, son.

Once again.

    You Are Little in My Arms, Once Again – I am all in tears, in these few words you described exactly how I feel too holding my babies to sleep, I really really liked how you put it in words, thank you
