The World Can Wait – A Poem for my Babies

The World can wait, the world can wait

I’ve nowhere to be and no chance to be late,

No schedule to run to, no washer to load,

No important meeting, or clothes to fold.

No outing, no class and no play date

You see, for once darling, the world can wait

………………………….

If the world can turn, then the world can wait

For I’ve something more precious than life on my plate

Brighter than the universe and the milky way

I no longer need the sun to mark the start of my day

No rush, no hurry, no time-up to make

You see, for once darling the world can wait

……………………………..

The world can wait, the world can wait,

Stop all the clocks and hold time in its place,

Freeze that smile, that moment unplanned

Keep those little fingers in the palm of my hand

Cuddles, bath time and tiny dreams to make

You see, for once darling the world can wait

…………………………………

If the world can turn, then the world can wait,

Masters of our little universe, our destiny ours to create,

I choose to slow down and share mine with you

To remember all the tiny things that you do,

Belly laughs and smiles that make my heart break

You see, for once darling the world can wait

……………………………….

The world can wait, the world can wait,

“Us time” is the new commodity I cannot waste,

You see, this precious gift wont always be mine,

life will move on but, little darling thats fine

………………………………….

One day you wont turn and throw that gaze my way,

Your cry will no longer be what marks the start of my day,

Night time feeds and day long hugs will be no more,

No tiny toys or discarded food to clear from the floor,

No squidgy folds to behold and no hair to brush

So hold on world, I don’t want to rush
