It’s during nights like this, when you are snuggled up and warm, when your dreams float up to the darkened ceiling, and your slow peaceful sleep pervades my being that I wish for invincibility. To be able to weather whatever life offers, to stay the time, slow it down somewhat, so I could be there to see you take each tiny step toward becoming the best that you can be.
It is during nights like this that I wish for a draught from the fountain of wisdom to be able to answer the million questions that you have about life, about the way we are.
It is during nights like this that I wish for immortality, to watch you embrace life, to help you reach your dreams, and to share the glee of your ever-expanding world.
Sleep tight, little one. I will be here when you wake, and together, we will greet the sun and the world a good morning.
