Yesterday I held your hand tightly, while tears streamed down my face.
I could not hold your body, there were too many wires in place.
Today I held you on my lap, you barely fit there now.
I'll keep holding you anyway, as long as you allow.
Tomorrow you will be as tall as me, I can't wait to see you grow.
There are so many things I am excited for you to know.
Yesterday I was afraid, of what tomorrow would bring.
Today we're here, and you are strong: We've been through everything.
Yesterday I watched the surgical team take you away from me.
Today your heart is beating, because they repaired it carefully.
Tomorrow I will watch you run and play, without so much as a care.
Yesterday I wasn't sure, that you would ever get there.
Tomorrow is not guaranteed,
not for you, nor for me.
But I promise you today,
you are loved in every single way.
