Sleeping Beauty

You breathe deep and slow,

Your chest rises and falls,

I see your eyes moving under their lids;

Hoping you are having a good dream.

As I watch you sleep, I am in awe

That this beautiful creation came from me.

Knowing you have changed so much,

Growing up faster than I can follow,

I treasure all these moments

As much at the ones when you’re awake.

And in every second of everyday,

My love for you grows faster than you do.

You are my life, my hope, my love –

You are my daughter.
