Because you are here with us – in your bed
Or in my arms, smiling already and making small
Noises, in your sleep and when you eat, which I love to
Hear – we check that you eat, or drink,
Enough, in your nappies and with your weight, that
U grow – eyes open (the sky!) or closed, satisfied or
Restless – while we kiss and hug, a feeling has taken hold –
because you are here with us.
