I know you’re tired Mummy, I see it in your face.
I know you’re tired Mummy, I feel it when we pace.
In my room back and forth, I hear your steps and your songs.
While we are bouncing, you right all that is wrong.
Your smell and your warmth, your sweet lullabies.
Just know that I hear them, even through my cries.
I know that these nights make tomorrow seem hard.
I know that these nights may even leave you scarred.
For never before have you been so tired or so scared.
But you’re doing alright and I love the moments we share.
So please Mummy keep bouncing, keep holding me close.
Please Mummy keep humming, keep watching me as I doze.
On your chest let me lay, it’s my favourite place.
These quiet moments, our sacred space.
I’m sorry that you’re tired and I’ve stolen your sleep.
But these moments are fleeting, the years do not keep.
We both know one day I will not need you like this.
So let’s enjoy the moment, it is something we’ll miss.
