I sneak into your room to watch
your little chest rise and fall –
I find myself thinking:
When did you get so tall?
Time went so slowly those first
few months. Now it slips by.
Our big ol’ world can be scary,
And it can be so cold –
life isn’t fair
This I know.
There’s hurt and danger out there
But what I can do
Is love you with all I’ve got
Christmas carols on
Take your little hand
Spin you ‘round and ‘round
I want to always remember
Your laughter’s beautiful sound
