Kodak Moments

Simple melodies fill the air,
	a tender hand threads though his hair.

Rocking motion, sleepy eyes,
	restless spirit, little cries.

Fighting sleep afraid to miss,
	one second of life and it’s bliss.

Calming peace begins to fall,
	as the crying begins to stall.

Mother now extremely tired,
	from a son that has been wired.

Sleep now consuming her,
	afraid to move or even stir.

Mother and child fast asleep,
	a kodak moment to keep.

    I never even you knew you wrote this one. It reminds me a lot of when little man was first born. He and I would fall asleep in the rocking chair from time to time. Very sweet write.

    Knowing you have a little one at home, I'll bet you witness a lot of these special "kodak moments," Nate. Guess the baby keeps both of you busy, but it's great to see you posting again! Very enjoyable poem with a warm, tender quality. Love, Carolyn
