Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of love.
~Maureen Hawkins~

It's three A.M.,
they're all asleep,
And no one's here to see.
As we rock slowly back and forth,
My baby boy and me.
His little head is feather-light
Tucked up against my chin.
I hold his tiny hand in mine
And stroke his baby skin.
The house about us creaks and groans,
The clock hands creep around.
He snuggles closer to me still
And makes his baby sounds.
I love these quiet hours so much
And cherish every one.
Store memories up inside my heart
For lonely nights to come.
All too soon he'll be grown up,
His need for Mama gone.
But until then I still have time
For kisses and for song.
Time for quiet hours like this
With him cuddled in my arms,
Where I wish he'd always stay,
Protected, safe, and warm.
And yet I know the day will come
When this tiny little hand
Will be much bigger than my own.
He'll grow to be a man.
But until then he's mine to love,
With no one here to see
As we rock slowly back and forth,
My baby boy and me.

Hold him a little longer,
Rock him a little more.
Tell him another story
(You’ve only told him four).
Let him sleep on your shoulder,
Rejoice in his happy smile,
He is only two-and-a-half
For such a little while!
~Author Unknown~

At night when little ones lie down
and nestle snug in bed
the sandman makes his rounds and touches
every sleepyhead
he tiptoes through the window of
each room where children dwell
and listens quite unnoticed
to the stories mothers tell
and though no one can see him
every night he will be there
waiting with a bag of dreams
for good children to share
he must be quite a kindly soul
as old as time itself
and I am most inclined to think
he is a jolly elf
because for years he's never failed
through fair and stormy weather
to sprinkle sand on sleepyheads
and glue their eyes together.
