    My Baby Boy and Me
    (Author Unknown)

    It's three AM, they're all asleep,
    and no-one's here to see.
    As we rock slowly back and forth,
    My baby boy and me.
    His little hand is feather light
    Tucked up against my chin.
    I hold his tiny hand in mine,
    and stroke his baby skin.

    The house about us creaks and groans,
    The clock hands creep around.
    He snuggles closer to me still,
    And makes his baby sounds.

    I love these quiet hours so much,
    And cherish every one.
    Store memories up inside my heart
    For lonely nights to come.

    All too soon he'll be grown up,
    His need for mama gone.
    But until then I still have time
    For kisses and for song.

    Time for quiet hours like this
    With him cuddled in my arms,
    Where I wish he'd always stay
    Protected, safe and warm.

    And yet I know the day will come
    When his tiny little hand,
    will be bigger than my own.
    He'll grow to be a man.

    But until then he's mine to love
    With no one here to see.
    As we rock slowly back and forth,
    My baby boy and me.

    I read this for the first time when my youngest son was still a baby and I just loved it. Now that my boys are older (14,12 & 7) whenever I read it I become a bit misty eyed [​IMG]

    {sniff!} I love it!

    Have you read "Love You Forever"? The mother always sneaks into the baby's room and rocks him at night, all through his life, as an infant, a toddler, a nine year old, a teen and she signs this son to him;

    "I love you forever, I like you for always,
    as long as your living by baby you'll be.

    Never fails to make me cry, I can't read it to my kids without weeping!

    Will Smith's "Just The Two of Us" makes me weepy too!

    *sigh* ok, I'm going to cry now... I love my boys being babys and it makes me so sad that one day they won't need me to hold their hands all the time. That was beautiful!
