To my son

I want to hold you longer,
keep you tight against my chest.
I'll never let you go because
Mommy knows you best.
There's nothing I love more
than my chin upon your head,
Feeling your heart beating
and breathing in your breaths.
I keep your hand in mine,
just trying to hold tight
to my little blond-haired baby boy
who's growing up before my eyes.
Not knowing what will be,
I pray when each day is done
hoping you always need me
but knowing the time will come
When I can only watch
as you make your own way through
asking God to help me
to let go and give Him you
So I'll hold you a little longer,
keep you tight against my chest
before I lose this moment
because mommy knows you best.
