Today I will press the pause button,
I won’t fast forward or rewind,
I will hold onto this moment,
And completely free my mind.
I won’t look at the future
And the endless ‘To Do’ list
I won’t stare back at the past,
And dwell over what I have missed
I will enjoy this moment,
Together just you and me.
I will take in your beautiful face,
Your smell, your smile so cheeky.
I will rest my cheek against yours,
Let your tiny hands curl into mine,
I will laugh with you loudly
And not glance at the time.
My dear little baby,
The one I cried and prayed for.
Why do I let life occupy me
And forget who I live for?
Today phones, messages and even time
Won’t distract me from you.
Today the clock will stop
And it’ll be just us two.
