My Little Corter Moon



The minute you blink, they grow up so quick.
From playing with rattles to building with bricks.

Watching each day as you get ever stronger.
That's how I know that you're little no longer.

"Mom, come on!" I tell you to go and play. 
"Please mom, come play?" There goes another day. 

You grow up so fast, changing within a year. 
I look at you daily, and I shed a tear. 

Not for how fast you're growing, but for the man you will be. 
You know that love is the one thing in this world that is free. 

My little love, I believe in you. 
I know as you grow, you'll believe in you, too. 

Please remember, time is fleeting, and it can be gone all too soon. 
You will always be my everything, my son, stars and moon.

Ahh, love this, Jennifer! This is the second post I read today about the short window of time we have when they are still little! I need to go love on my kids, right now. :-)
