let me pause this moment

please, let me pause this moment

when your spills can be cured with a kiss

when whatever i'm doing is what you want to do too

when i keep you away from the dog's water bowl

before i have to keep you away from scary things like drugs or the internet

or bieber fever


let me pause this moment because

you are curious rather than cynical

because everyone you meet is a friend

because i am your favorite person in the world

simply because i am

your mother and through

no achievement of my own


let me pause this moment because

you taught yourself to climb stairs but

you are slow enough for me to catch you first

because you still take three naps a day

and you eat whatever i put in front of you


let me pause this moment

because every day you are more precious and

more loved and i am afraid

that one day my heart

will simply

burst.
