My lil man

The moon peeks thru my window Looking to bathe me in its midnight light We are one yet we are two I feel you stretch inside my stretched out belly Watch as your hand presses against your tiny home I start to hum my mothers song and I can feel you shift Perhaps to listen better I smile as the thought crosses my mind You relax as I lay we lay watching the moon watch us It used to be me against the world Now its us against the world But never fear For i am near And while im here No harm will come to you my dear My lil man my heart Though you're still so small And the world so big I'd face a thousand foes Smooth out a thousand woes Before letting you go. Rocking in my rocking chair I sit and dream of years to come Your first christmas First grade Your second third and fourth girlfriends The fifth scraped knee Your sixth doctor visit The seventh grade when you made the team And the eighth when you almost quit Nine dozen late night conversations And of course the 10 million kisses I just cant stop giving you A lifetime of treasured memories just waiting to happen As I sit there rocking in my rocking chair The moon peeking thru my window And your tiny movements As my heart beats with your heartbeat And our hearts beat as one My lil man
