If only I could tuck away
for some quiet distant day  
the softness of your baby skin
and feel you close once again. 
 Photographs will have to do
to capture days when you were new
 But no picture knows your downy hair
Or how you calmed when I was near.
 I love to watch you grow and learn
But there may be times when I yearn
 for your soft gentle baby touch
when you needed me so much.

  1. you've got me crying :*(. Beautifully written and so true. I am having such a hard time with the swiftness in which my youngest (and oldest) are growing up. So bittersweet. How I often long to hit the pause button on time!

  2. Aww, what a sweet poem! Almost made me cry, even!
