I want to…


For my son.

I want to…

I want to watch every little milestone, 

I want to see your sweet little face every waking morning,

I want to kiss your forehead each night before you lay your head in a cloud of pillows,

I want to hold your small hand, held tightly in my palms while our fingers interlace,

I want to hear momma,

I want to see you be you,

I want to be there in your life, have the blessing my mother your nana never had,

I want to see you grow up,

Grow into the wonderful man I know you’ll be,

I want to look into your face,

I want you to hold my wrinkled hands and cup my wrinkled face with your hands telling me mom I love you,

I want you to know that I love you more than air, more than life itself,

I want you to know that you are the best thing that ever happened to me,

I want you to know that you’re a blessing, that you saved my life,

I want you to know that every struggle is worth it because of you,

I want you to know that I would do it all over again without hesitation,

I want you to know that…

you are my life,

my pride and joy,

my happiness,

my heart,

my everything,

I love you son.
