I get to see you every day,
I get to wipe your tears away.
I get to sing you to sleep and be ecstatic when you want to read me just one more book.
and I can’t imagine missing it.
From the moment we met, there is nothing I regret.
I am dedicated to your happiness and you are the root of mine.
I get to feel you here, with me all the time. Playing, jumping, singing, leaping, growing.
I get to walk with your tiny hand in mine and watch as your growing feet make bigger and bigger strides.
And I can’t imagine missing it.
I get to listen to your stories and hear your voice that never stops.
I get to compromise when you argue and let you stay up one more hour.
I get to hold you when you re seeking comfort when the world is too loud or bright or your clothes don’t sit just right.
And I couldn’t imagine missing it.
Growing, changing, evolving.
And He’s just missing it. I can’t imagine.
