Just stop and let me hold you

Just stop and let me hold you

How would you spend your last day on this earth?  There lies your priorities and your passions.  Take an hour or two this weekend to embrace moments you love.

Just stop and let me hold you

Just stop and let me hold you.  We never know how long we have.  Let’s just enjoy this moment.  Just stop and let me hold you.  The housework can wait, let me put my phone away and turn the laptop off.

Just stop and let me hold you. You are growing up too fast.  Let’s just forget the bedtime routine today, fall asleep on my chest.  I am here for you.

Just stop and let me hold you, ask me as many questions as you like.  Ok I will read your favourite story twice.  I love your enthusiasm for life.  Just stop and let me hold you, I am sorry for complaining about all the mess you make.  I am so lucky to have you here with me to make it.  I am so lucky to be well enough to clear it up.

I’m sorry for the times I look forward to you napping so I have my own space.  Just stop and let me hold you as you sleep today.  You are a miracle.  You have the perfect little nose. You are so cute when you snore.

I’m sorry for being grumpy with you last night.  Just stop and let me hold you.  I am always happy to see you return home safe.  I love you.  I need you.

 

Life can become overwhelming when we think of all we need to achieve in a day. Sometimes we need to find perspective and think of all those who would long for the chance to say ‘just stop and let me hold you‘.
