She reached for me in the night
My heart was filled with such delight.
The most beautiful face I’ve ever seen
She’s a child I love so much I mean.
So thankful to hold her near
Her need and love is just so dear.
Her tiny sighs and peaceful noises
Sweet little cuddles and tiny voices.
There may be nights when she needs me more
And sleep I’ll not find, not even a snore.
How could I love you more I think
From your sweet smell I’ll always drink.
Your silky tresses fall upon my cheek
My love for you is a secret I’d leak.
I hope you forever let me hold you
Help you, love you, and be a friend too
For now, cuddle in close my love
For you are clearly sent from above.
