To My Children

My life is full of heartfelt hugs, wiping tears, and tiny clothes.
My arms are full of love to give for bringers of each of those.
My head can rest near curly hair, softened breaths, and sleepy eyes;
Wrapped in my arms safe and warm is where my babies lie.
My world revolves around early days, loud car trips, and baby wipes,
But in each moment I see them smile everything’s alright.
My family is a jumbled mess of what ifs and good luck charms
But everything is better when we’re wrapped in your father’s arms.
So one day when you’re grown like me think back to how we were,
Wrapped tightly in your father’s arms safe and sound, secure.
