Take your precious time, my love –

Don’t grow up too fast.

You’re growing up before my eyes

And soon, these years will be past.

The way you climb my legs, my love –

Asking for a cuddle.

You won’t always cry for comfort

When you’re in a muddle.

It seems I blinked too long, my love,

A glance away is but all I took.

Now, you stand before me, laughing,

And so, i take a second look.

Can’t you stay this small forever?

Clutching teddy oh so tight.

Some day you won’t wake me or

call for me in the night.

All too soon you’ll leave my nest,

You’ll be holding the hand of another.

So, til then, I’ll cling to yours,

Thankful to be your mother.
