Just Once….

Just once I wish I could have spent a late hour rocking you in my arms,

Just once I wish I could have gently lain you in your crib.

I wish I could have changed a diaper,

Chosen an outfit for the day,

GIven you a bath,

and soothed your skin with lotion.

Just once I wish I could have heard you cry out in loneliness for me,

or spent time alone with you, just the two of us.

Strolled you proudly through the shopping mall,

Just once I wish I could have heard the words

“What a beautiful, healthy baby boy!”

Just once….
