gone too soon




last night i slept with baby dear
hoping mom would get some rest

her first feeding came all too soon
then she was whisked away
to the source of nourishment

but,
as we lay in the dark
together
i listen to sighs and squeaks
reach out in the night
make sure that fuzzy head
still warm

she'll never remember
i'll never forget

"She'll never remember, I'll never forget" - precious. Isn't that reality of our time with these little ones - so new and unsullied. She's lucky to have you as Grandma. And I hope Ali got some sleep!

I think babies remember in their souls.
She drank your heart in , as you did hers.
