Away From You

It feels weird that you’re not here beside
I’m adapting but I miss you terribly
I miss your warmth, hugging me tenderly
Being away from you is killing me

As time goes by it will be easier
But I’m afraid you would not remember
The past year that we spent together
Just you and me creating forever

Please be safe and happy, that’s what I pray
Then I’ll be fine, I’ll make it through the day
If there’s a miracle to find the way
I still wish to be with you or make you stay

A Year Ago

A year ago, 8 pounds of delight arrived
Wrapped with innocence, she made us feel alive
Bundled with pure smile, she marked a beginning
Of new inspiration, purpose and meaning

A year ago, a present came from above
A 20 inch gift swaddled with joy and love
A blessing that will forever be treasured
A real happiness that cannot be measured

A year ago, Alisha Nini was born
My life’s been better, it will never be scorned
Our baby, you always make things beautiful
And to God, I’ll be eternally grateful

I Am Here

Why are you scared, my dear?
It’s a new world, I know
I’m beside you, I’m here
I won’t leave, I won’t go
And I promise you…

Chorus 1:
I will never leave you
I am just here
I’ll forever hold you
Locked in my embrace

Or you can take my hand
I’ll wipe away your tears
Then together we’ll stand
Let’s drive away your fears
And I promise you…

Chorus 2:
I will never leave you
I am just here
You are always safe here
Here in my arms

You are always safe here
Here in my arms…

Letter To The Extension Of My Soul

Since you’ve come, my world has found a different meaning
A beautiful, amazing new life is unfolding
It’s divine! The epitome of inspiration
This is for the love that defies all my confusion

Every time you smile or laugh, you melt my heart and all
Then the time I heard you cry, my tears can’t stop to fall
So I promise to take care of you ’til you say never
This is for the love I vow to be with forever

So thank you, baby, you are a gift, a rare blessing
You are the only one who fills my every longing
I am now complete. With you, I am finally whole
This is for the love that’s an extension of my soul

What If

sleeping baby

What if you were just a pigment of my dream?
What if the life I’ve known with you was unreal?
Slowly, my world, my life will start to dim
My heart will be broken, it will never heal

For now I’ve learned to enjoy this life with you
I have a new purpose and that’s to see you grow
So what if I was just imagining you?
Then please hold me close and don’t ever let go

Or take me back to my dream where you were there
Then I will hug you, lock you in my embrace
Then don’t wake me up, I’ll stay until forever
So I can be with you in this happy place

I Love…

I love smelling your hair, it smells like baby powder
I love kissing your forehead, pinching your nose
I love wiping your tears whenever you cry
I love seeing your toothless grin, your cute little smile
It always melts my heart, I forget that I’m tired

I love holding your hands, rubbing your belly
Whenever you push and try to do number two
It seems that I’m helping you but it’s all on you
I love changing your diapers, wiping your butt
I even made a song, please remeber that

I love writing you poems and songs to sing for you
I love teaching you 123s and ABCs
I love playing with you, reading you books
I love the way you listen to all stories I tell
You seem to understand all things that I say

I love the way you sneeze, you cough, and you yawn
And how you fart like you are a big human being
I love tickling you and massaging your legs
I love your scared look whenever we bathe you
Then how happy you are whenever we dress you

I love how you hate burping when you’re still hungry
I love how drunk you are after each feeding
I love how you can sleep soundly on my chest
I love watching you sleep and dream at night
And when you have nightmares, I love soothing your cries

I love how you stretch your short little arms
Then you make these grunts like you have a hard life
I even love your tantrums like you’ve been neglected
Then how you talk to us as if you know all the words
And how you tell your dadsi about your day

I love seeing you grow, becoming a lady
I love waiting for the day you’ll take your first step
I love that God gave you to us and touch our lives
I love you, I love everything about you
But if there’s one thing I don’t love…
It’s I don’t love missing you

I Wish I Could

I wish I could always make you smile
But all I could do is to wipe your tears
Each time you cry or are hurting
And know I’m here to understand

I wish I could take away your pain
But all I could do is to stay with you,
To hug you and hold you tight
And know you won’t suffer alone

I wish I could carry your burden
But all I could do is to be your rock,
To be there when you make your move
And know I’m here to watch over you

There are many things I wish I could
But I could never take your place
But just know until my very end,
I am always here to hold your hand
