Watching you breathe,
And hearing your heart beat..
Tears fill up my eyes,
I put my hand next to yours,
You roll over,
And smile with pride..
We glance at each other,
And get lost in each others eyes,
And look in the other direction,
To see a crib where Zoey lies..
Her soft light brown hair,
Pressed against her cheek,
Her little blue eyes sparkling,
And she was ours to keep..
She stood up on her little bitty feet,
Put her hands on the rail of the crib,
You smile and go to pick her up,
But before you could, she made a leap..
She cuddled up in your arms,
With her head lying on your shoulder,
Her little baby hands against yours,
You couldn’t stop holding her..
She slowly drifted asleep,
Holding you close,
You looked at me,
And was happy that it was her we chose..
