So Tonight I Am Going To Hold You.

I know they say never to wake a sleeping baby, but I really want to feel your cheek on my chest,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

I know some nights I can’t wait for you to sleep soundly, but then I always miss the sound of your sweet little voice,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

Some nights I stare at you in your bed and just think of how I could have been a better mom for you that day,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

Some nights I just miss you so much because we’ve spent too much time apart during the day,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

There are times I know you haven’t had the best day and could use an extra hug from me,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

There are times I see you and burst with pride and amazement for all you’ve already become,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

There are moments I wish I could freeze time and have you cuddled in my arms forever,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

There are days I worry about the times when you’ll need me but I may be too far to get to you right away,

so tonight I’m going to hold you.

And tonight I am thinking of how I just know there will be so many times ahead when you’re grown and all I’ll want is just to be with you,

so I am going to hold you—

as close as I can, for as long as you’ll let me.
