Okinawa Newborn Photographer - Remembering

Help me remember, when I feel it's a chore,

The time will come when I'll hold baby no more,

Asleep on my chest, the crib refused, 
the blanket , the pacifier, gone unused.
What better place is there to lay baby's head
Than against my heart, my arm her bed?
For children grow up and leave us behind
With only memories left to remind us
Of midnight walking and predawn rocking,
Of sweet, crying babies unable to sleep.
So, keep me patient and keep me awake
While I cradle this dear child,
And don't let me begrudge another long night
With this baby, my darling, my joy, my delight.
