A Poem For The Night

I put you in your cot at night waiting for your call,

When you cry I rush to you, bolting through your door,
Gently picking you up I cradle you,
I’m secretly glad you called for me so I can squeeze in some more love,
As if I want to sleep all night missing out on our precious time,
Your head is cradled on my arm as I hold you close to mine,
Your eyes have closed and you nuzzle in feeling safe again,
I can smell your sweet breath and love it more than words,
I stroke your soft hair and hold your hand,
I feel so very blessed,
Thank you for calling out to me,
From this I never tire,
Even if it means sleepless nights,
I truly love our time.
