baby sleeps

My baby’s silhouette shone
in the light of the night

adorable chubby cheeks
beautiful facial features
in minuscule perfection

mouth wide open
breathing the deep sleep

tiny hands clutching
pillow in one
bear in another

he stirred
flipped over onto his front

by my intrusion
into his rain-swept room

sometimes I forget
the reality

that he was smaller before
and soon
he will only get bigger

in my own selfish mind
I only wish he was tiny forever

always looking to me
always close to me
always my baby

I could never describe this love
in plain words
