the luckiest

and i am the luckiest
as the full weight of his 16 month body
melts into mine
his pudgy fingers curl into the v of my shirt
his thick little legs twitch
as he drifts off into dreams
and his breath, so confident and deep
i peer into his messy mop of curls
and inhale life
and i am the luckiest
to be given a gift like this
