Sweet baby of mine, I will always hold your hand.
From those first few moments of life, my arms cradled you so softly. As your eyes discovered the world around you, I promised to be your protector.
My beautiful child, I will always hold your hand.
As I rock you to sleep in the wee hours of the morning, my arms will be your cushion. And during those uncontrollable cries, my voice will comfort you.
My sweet little baby, I will always hold your hand.
During those first wobbly steps, my fingers will hold you steady. And as I hear those first words and giggles, my hands will clap and cheer for you. Through toddler meltdowns and potty training, to your first day of school, I will be by your side.
As you grow through the years, I will always hold your hand.
On those days where you feel defeated, when you didn’t make the team. And on the days when you realize the world is not always kind, I will be that shoulder to lean on.
Whether it’s your first heartbreak, or your crowning achievement; through the good times and the bad, my hand will always be there for you.
And when you are all grown up, with a family of your own, please know I will still be by your side. When you need a recipe, or simply need to vent, I will be just a phone call away.
I will always be your friend, your confidant, your mother.
And sweet little baby of mine, my hand will always be there to hold onto.
