thinking of the nights I got up for my baby only wanting to sleep.
I lay awake and listen to the quiet
I hear her breath but there is no cry
I look forward to sitting alone with her
and singing her a lullaby

some mothers hate the night
when the little one needs fed
I lay awake and wait,
ready to jump out of bed.

I waited so long for a baby
I love all that comes with it
making memories in my heart
just rocking as we sit.

there is not a moment
in the day or dark of night
that I do not love what comes
until the morning light.

she will grow up too quickly
be gone as a bride
but the love that I give her
is not something that I hide.

I cherish every moment
weather good or some that's bad
but as she walks the isle
I'll remember the love we had.
