the screaming seems endless
i can't take it a moment longer
i put you in your basket and walk away


walk back and lift you out
cuddle you to me
you eventually calm down
your eyelids droop
your head slides to one side

soon you are asleep

and i stare in wonder at your smallness
how in years to come i will look back
remember you scrunched up on me asleep
your eyelids so thin
mouth hanging open slightly
your soft breathing
your beauty

and i cherish this moment
