You'll Always Be My Baby

Updated: Aug 2, 2022


You’ll always be my baby

just heavier to hold


You’ll always be my beginning

but a comfort that feels old


You’ll always be my heart beat

a familiar but new sound


You’ll always be the ticking clock

in a world you made slow down


You’ll always be my worry

when you trip and when you fall


You’ll always be my tears

the happiest of them all


You’ll always be my constant

the pulse of our home


You’ll always be my calling

more so when I’m alone


You’ll always be my journey

I’m taken away with you


You’ll always be my weakness

and a strength I never knew


You’ll always be my final thoughts

even on those harder days


You’ll always be my forever

and forever be my always


You’ll always be my reason

even when I’m grey and old


You’ll always be my baby

just heavier to hold
