Tiny arms


Tiny arms

Wake me up

Searching

Then wrapping themselves

Around my neck

Sweet breath

Stroking my face

In a deep, relaxing rhythm

Your little strong heartbeat

Next to mine

Leaving me

In awe and inspiration

Marvelling at the gift

The privilege

Of being your mother

Before I drift back

To sleep
