I Love Him

My baby is three today
and I know these days of baby teeth, a floppy body and public kisses
are passing quickly
so quickly
but I wish they weren't

I wish I could catch them in a jar like lightening bugs
so I squeeze him in my arms and snuggle him in my bed
and run my fingers through his golden curls again and again
and again and again
He is my Haven
