I look into your eyes,
and I feel adoration so strong.
And as I watch you sleep so soundly,
I begin to get sad.
I know that one day you might be unfairly judged
and your heart might get broken.
I know someone will eventually make you cry
and you might feel like crap.
I know you’ll be forced to face the realities of this world,
and that crushes me.
But you have to grow up sometime,
so I must enjoy your youth now.
I will enjoy your giggles
and smiles and
your love for everyone around you.
I’ll forget that people will be mean to you
and I’ll forget that you might
hate me one day.
For now, I will enjoy your beautiful spirit
and baby laughs.
I’m sorry that it won’t be like this forever.
