I can’t remember the last time I’ve written a poem! Today, while snuggling and kissing my almost five year old (how is that possible?!), I had to stop to write this down, because it just hit me. I love hearing their giggles and laughter. I love that they still love kisses (well, at least he does) and hugs. That won’t always be the case.

As time goes on, I realize more and more how quickly it slips through our fingers. The chubby faced boys I held and snuggled now turn away from a kiss and hug. Cherish every moment you have, parents! You’ll  regret time NOT spent with them, not time spent with them. <3

Just thought I would share it with you.


Take time! Any amount will do! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Lux! I love how it turned out.

  1. Love this. As an empty nester I know time flies by all too quickly. Thankfully my kids 20 & 23 1/2 still let me hug them. The eldest will actually wait until I let go to let go of me.

    thanks for the smile


    1. Thanks so much, Marie! Glad you got a smile out of it. 🙂 And thanks for sharing it with moms right in the thick of it, too. 🙂
      God bless!

  2. I love this poem! I was wondering if allowed if I can use this poem to make a wooden sign for small business commercial use?
