just yesterday your life was brand new.
I held you close and rocked you to sleep
amazed that this miracle was mine to keep.
Somehow two years have swept through
days of smiles, and tears and holding you.
I keep thinking time will slow down,
take a break, give us time before your grown.
But it seems intent on racing away
as you work so hard at play.
So forgive me as I pull you near
and smell your skin and kiss you dear.
As you learn and grow, try and do,
know that you carry my heart with you.
