he and I

Tonight,
it's just us.
He and I.




A while ago,
I picked him up and his long lanky legs fell down to my knees.
Staring at the mirror in astonishment,
I thought to myself,
How did our baby boy grow so fast?
I told him how tiny he was when he was born.
How long his feet were when measured against my hand.


How tiny his little fingernails and toenails were.
How Daddy would lay him on his chest and how they would nap together.
How his Sissy wanted to hold him ALL the time.


How loved he was, is, and always will be.
