i was rocking my sweet angel bed tonight
a million things on my mind.
and all the sudden i heard a voice..
a gentle whisper.
be here in this moment now.
My train of thought was broken, the clouds cleared.
and i looked in my arms.
this perfect child of God.
this list could go on for days.
i watched him gently close his drunken eyes.. a nod into a peaceful slumber.
i nestled my chin into his neck and breathed in his body scent.
there is nothing like the scent of you own baby.
remember this moment. remember how much he needs you at this age.
remember him nestled in your arms.
snuggled on me.
his soft swaddled blanket around him.
feeling his little chest rise and fall.
our hearts beating as one.
close your eyes.. feel his lashes on your cheeks.
his little nose against yours.
remember this chair rocking the motion
moving back a forth
back a forth.
the stillness the warmth
my eyes welled with tears.
my love for you Levi is
an abysmal love.
for always and always.
my sweet sweet darling boy.
be here. be alive. be peaceful.
just breathe it all in.
