Rocking My Baby

-A Poem for Nathan-

At the sound of your coo I awake from my sleep
Refreshed by a slumber delightfully deep!

Your gaze is so eager; Contagious your smile.
Let's go to the front room and rock for a while.

My magazines, books, and the phone are right there
But I do nothing more than just rock you, and stare.

I smell your fresh breathing and touch your smooth skin.
We warm one another both outside and in.

After eating and burping, your diaper's a mess.
I guess I should change you, and get you all dressed.

But with you, this moment, the whole world has stopped.
So cuddle me close and together we'll rock.
