Nap

Small body, he lies beside me in my bed

He snuggles his doggie into my neck

And I’m not sure

If he’s entrusting me with it

Or if he’s entrusting it with me

 

His soft belly rises and falls

He complains a little bit

Just for show

But we are both happy to be here

Resting

 

I press my cheek against his

Unbelieveably, unbearably soft

He doesn’t move away

Not yet

 

He says he’s not a baby

And he’s right

But his body remembers

What it was like to be part of mine

I can still fold him

Bendy arms and legs

Into a little ball

Our bodies nestle into each other now

 

We sleep

      Yeah, the thought of my youngest getting bigger and growing away from me makes me really sad. It’s so fleeting.
