I discovered this poem on Pinterest earlier and although I can’t seem to find the writer to credit, I thought I would share it with you. It’s beautiful, poignant and makes you think about the little things we should cherish with our little ones…
“I won’t always cry, Mummy,
When you leave the room
and my supermarket tantrums,
Will end too soon,
I won’t always wake, Daddy,
… For cuddles through the night
& one day you’ll miss,
Having a chocolate face to wipe.
You won’t always wake to find my foot,
is kicking you out of bed,
Or find me sideways on your pillow,
Where you want to lay your head.
You won’t always have to carry me,
In asleep from the car,
Or piggy back me down the road,
When my little legs can’t walk that far,
So cherish every cuddle,
Remember them all,
Because one day, Mummy.
I won’t be this small.”
