Sleepless nights spent together, a comfort despite the ache of a weary mind and heart.
No matter how alone I felt, you were always there for me,
And now that my babes are grown-no more baby beds being used,
You are far more to me than an easy chair.
You are where I struggled to nurse and then found success.
You were my refuge in the wee hours of the morning.
You were my ally in the battle against the unknown, which kept my girls awake and awake again.
The thought of getting rid of you breaks my heart in two, as you are not just a piece of furniture.
You are a sanctuary, a safe place, a bonding site for both my girls and I,
And I hope that now that you are in a new location in our home, that you will still be a place for us to seek warmth and love from one another.
Snuggles, hugs, and sleepy moments-
Moments that will reassure me that just because my girls do not need you,
Does not mean that they do not need me.
