My heart aches

For the days and weeks we’ll be apart

For the mornings we won’t snuggle

For the afternoon sunshine we won’t share

For the parties I’ll see only on video

For the playgrounds we won’t explore

For the pages you won’t turn for me

For the photographs I won’t take

For raspberries I won’t see you blow

For the words I won’t be first to hear

For the stories I won’t tell your dad

For the nights I won’t comfort you

For the “good nights” I won’t sing

And for the “I love you”s I won’t whisper

While I am away from you

Whenever that will be

I won’t be away long

And we will do it all again soon

But still my heart aches

For all I will miss

And how much I will miss you

Sweet child of mine
