As I sit and watch you grow
Our first meeting was so brief,
I didn’t want to let you go,
I wished to hold you in my arms,
To take you home and watch you grow.
I waited for a little while
to cuddle you and say hello,
I didn’t want to put you back,
but to hold you as you grow.
Your little face so beautiful,
Your little limbs like sticks of willow,
Sat by your side I have watched and waited,
As little by little you begin to grow.
I want you to come and stay with me,
in our home so we can show,
you the love that lives inside those walls,
and will never cease to flow,
For now though I will hold your hand,
Stroke your head, take your photo,
I will capture your little milestones,
As I sit and watch you grow.
