Tiny hands and tiny toes
These are by far the things that matter most.
They hold on tight
But not too close
I will be sad when you don’t need me most.
Your eyes light up when I walk into a room
And as I walk away, you start to cry.
I never knew I would need you more
than you would need me to climb and soar.
You’ve shown me mercy
You’ve taught me grace
Time please slow down, this isn’t a race.
Your tiny hands and tiny toes will one day no longer be mine to hold.
Time will pass and you will grow
I know that’s every mother’s goal.
You will grow up to be tough
Those sweet tiny hands will one day turn rough.
Just remember I loved you first
and without a doubt, my heart will hurt.
If she makes you happy
And she loves you so
I know I will have to let you go.
Be patient with me
I promise the happy will outweigh the sad.
The days will get easier
It won’t be forever hard.
You will make new memories
And one day you will have kids of your own
But I’ll never stop missing your tiny toes.
