Wait A Minute...

by Eibutsina   Feb 6, 2005

I remember holding you for the first time
In disbelief God created you as mine
Never in this world can I describe this inexplicable joy
Giving birth the day I met my baby boy…
But time has passed and my baby has grown
He has got this personality and mind all of his own
He’s starting to eat solids; you should see him walk along
Getting heavier by the day as he grows big and strong…
Those days of nappies and tears, thought strange I do miss it
And think to myself please could you just wait a minute?

I remember touching my belly in awe and overwhelmed
In fear and excitement at what the future held
In his eyes I found a love that I had never known before
No one I loved more or was willing to sacrifice everything for…
Never want my baby boy to have to struggle through
I would sell my soul if that’s what I had to do
To show him the world and all its beautiful things
Ensure my boy has only the best of absolutely everything…
The pride is unconditional and my dedication so infinite
But he’s growing so quickly could time just wait a minute?

Before I know he’ll be at school learning the alphabet
He’ll listen more to his friends and his Mum he’ll forget
He’ll always be out and soon he’ll start to talk back
One day I will lose him and I am scared of that…
He’ll fall in love with a woman and move out of home
Right now he’s still young but I can’t believe how he’s grown
But time never stops or slows down for none
So I will treasure these precious few years with my son…
My only one regret in life would be that I didn’t
Continue to wish that time would just wait a minute…

    I dream of the feelings that you describe in the first two stanzas. The last stanza broke my heart, and those are the only feelings I fear about motherhood. Your genuine and true love shows for your son in this piece. Keep it up!

    God Bless,
