My dear one, you are my everything…
You are sweet coos and spit ups.
You are nights awake crying and days sleeping soundly on my chest.
You are tender moments alone rocking back and forth as I softly hum a rhythmic tune.
You are my everything.
As I gaze at you, I wonder…
Will I be able to hold on to the memory of each moment?
Will I show patience each day and at the times most needed?
Will I love you the way only you need to be loved?
Will I offer you enough support and encouragement to instill confidence? But not too much to overwhelm you?
Will my smile alone bring you joy and a feeling of calm?
Will I be able to offer you all you deserve and more?
Will you truly know how much I love you?
I may not be perfect, my dear one, but I promise you this…
You will always be my everything.
