If you only knew, the emotions we go through;
The trouble we have, knowing if you are too
Hot or too cold
Or happy or sad
Or just want your mummy or should it be dad?
Is your tummy hurting?
Is your nappy wet?
We don’t have the answers but this should be said:
We love you more than we knew existed
And we’re pretty sure you’re incredibly gifted!
If you only knew mum how much I love you,
for giving me life and keeping me healthy.
I know I can’t speak but I’m doing my best
to keep you updated on how I am feeling.
Sometimes I get angry, it’s nothing you’ve done,
I just haven’t learnt to control my emotions.
Don’t take it to heart if I sleep on my dad,
it’s just that his smell does less to distract.
Don’t think I don’t love, you because of this fact;
you grew me, gave life to me and keep me intact.
So know that I love you, continue to teach me
and one day I hope to become a version of you.
