I stumbled across this poem this morning and thought I'd share it. I wrote this soon after Phoebe started daycare. I don't think it needs any other explanation really.
I pick you up and look into your tired eyes
I kiss your forehead and wonder have you cried
I hear your stories of adventure and fun
And wonder at all of the hearts you've won
I think of the many hours since I last kissed you
And wonder if you know how much I've missed you
I hear of all your latest falls and fears
And how someone else kissed your tears
You are my generous gift to the world
My gorgeous, funny sweet little girl.
How I wish that you were mine alone
And I could keep you safe at home
