For when you're up all night with your baby

by Lauren Matthies


 

One Day

One day I'll forget how tired I was and remember only the joy of holding you in my arms.
One day I'll forget the pain of holding you all night and remember only the sweet warmth of your hand against my chest.
One day I'll forget the challenge of nursing you through the night and remember only the honor of being so needed.
One day I'll forget the hours of missed sleep and remember only the moments of togetherness we shared.
One day I'll forget the frustration you brought and remember only the love you gave.
One day I'll be up all night because I miss the nights I was up all night with you.
So tonight I'll love being up all night with you.
