When the nights feel hard,
and your bones feel tired,
and sleep feels as if it’s nothing but a distant memory,
I hope you pay attention to how your little one
can rest within the confines of your lap,
and how their little hands wrap around your whole finger,
and how their little feet tap dance with excitement.
