Today I Watched You Sleeping...

Sitting beside you, I watched our angel sleep.

Legs crossed, tiny toes flickering... one arm stretched out. Your fingers signing out your dreams.

Little rump in the air, shaking like a puppy in a pet shop window.

Whisper sounds escaping from your plump lips, back lifting with each breath you take.

Our Love. Our Joy. Sweet Dreams...

Ah, sleeping babies. Nothing is better than watching a baby sleep. Well, maybe have them sleep on you or with you in your bed as a weekend treat (when they're a bit older and less crushable).

Good to see more gay dad bloggers around! :)

Beautiful daughter you guys have got. I was adopted, too. Bravo for stepping up and doing something for a little one, and allowing that little one to do the same to you. Your poem is touching. Thanks.
