We Sit and Listen

We sit and listen to you in the night,

when you think we think you’re sleeping.

We sit and listen to you in the night,

lucky enough to hear you creeping.

 

You replay the day’s events

talking and thinking out loud.

You don’t realize we hear every word

and seriously couldn’t be more proud.

 

You’re not down a long hallway,

with twists and turns through the dark.

Our house is small and our hearts are huge

Listen to you!  You’re so smart!

 

It occured to me tonight just how lucky we are to hear the little conversations you have in your room at night when you can’t fall asleep.  You talk and sing and order your babies around like you’re the momma bird.  If you were upstairs we’d have no idea you exist in a totally different world in there where you’re in charge.  You’ve got the power.
