Slumber, originally uploaded by Mellahaney.

Someday soon, there will be first steps, first falls. There will be piggy-back rides and father-son wrestling. There will be tag and catch and games of hide-and-seek played beneath the soft blankets of our bed or peeking out at the world from the crack behind the door.

There will be skinned-knees and grass stained clothes, bugs in jars, mud pies, bicycles, little league, bus stops, backpacks and book covers. The world will not wait.

But this morning, there is only this. And it's all my heart can hold.
