The Stamp of a Child

postage-stamp

Stretch marks, scars and sleepless nights

Night time feedings and Mickey night lights

Constant worry, time quickly passing

The stamp of a child is everlasting

Mismatched shoes and a make-up free face

Being on time is a very rare case

Spit up on work clothes, applesauce in your hair

The stamp of a child can be seen everywhere

Toys piled high, the couch must be sold

To make room for more toys, he’s not even a year old!

The whole house is his, Even the dog bed has been reclaimed

The stamp of a child is ever engrained

Tiny hands and a laugh that moves my soul

This sweet little boy has made my life whole

His fearless spirit is leaving a mark

The biggest stamp is the one on my heart
