A little while

A child cries
in the middle of the night.
You wake up
and wonder is he alright.
Pull over the cover
and climb out of bed
lift up the infant
and kiss his small head.
Rocking him gently
you hum a lullaby
and with a finger
wipe a tear from his eye.
Snuggles his way
into your chest
finally happy
to get some rest.
Sitting on the bed
you stare into space
then into your mind
comes your mothers face.
Memories flood back
of you as a child.
Out in the garden
let to run wild.
Looking at your son
you can’t help but smile
knowing that will be him
in just a little while.
