i luv this poem. I like how the way she or he stays next to his or her little one watching every inch what he or she is doing. for a father i have experience that but sometimes i can't because my son's always with her grandma and grandpa when i come home from work and sometimes he's with her mother sleeping in her arms on the floor. i give this poem 100

I have two boys near grown now but I still remember when they were babies and I watched them sleep. Wondering what their dreams were about. I miss that a lot but someday I will see their babies and watch them sleep too. Being a grandmother is a great dream of mine.
