I won’t always cry mummy,
When you leave the room
And my supermarket tantrums
Will end too soon.
I won’t always wake, daddy
For cuddles through the night
And one day you will miss
Having a chocolate face to wipe.
You won’t always wake to find my foot
Is kicking you out of bed
Or find me sideways on your pillow
Where you want to lay your head.
You won’t always have to carry me
In asleep from the car
Or piggy back me down the road
When my little legs can’t walk that far.
So cherish every cuddle,
Remember them all.
One day, Mummy
I won’t be this small.
