I walked into the living room earlier this week and found my youngest one asleep on the sofa. It reminded me of this poem I wrote many moons ago. :)
Put down your head, sweet child, upon my chest.
Close your eyes, and slumber in security.
When you cry, I weep an ocean of tears.
When you are hurt, my pain is so severe.
When you're gone, my self is incomplete.
When you smile, sunshine fills my life.
When you laugh, your comedy is a sweet song.
When you reach for me, my self becomes complete.
Sleep, my dear, in my warm arms.
When you sleep soundly, so may I.
