My sleepy son, my sleeping child
So beautiful and yet so fragile
Breath flows like a breeze
In your dreams you smile
While I watch awestruck
Cant believe this stroke of luck
Like a lovely angel on the earth
Can’t help staring at you for a while
All neatly dressed all scrubbed and cleaned
Adequately diaperized and hair all preened
Oh so handsome like a miniature toy
Sleeps so smugly my baby boy
The sleepless nights and missed work
For you it is all worthwhile
Only fathers can share this joy.
Rocking to sleep the baby boy.
