all too soon

My heart is all wrapped up
in pounds of flesh and bone
a feeling that overwhelms
she is in my arms
succumbing to slumber
these arms won’t let go
these eyes can’t look away
for fear she’ll grow up before my very eyes
every breath drives my heartbeat
a living pacemaker
reluctant to let go
every night is one more step
towards another day
an uncertain future
but I’ll sleep beside her tonight
listening for the littlest sound
and day will break
all too soon
