Last night was your first night away from me.

written by Bella Drew 2 January 2019

The first night since you’ve been born I’ve gone to sleep without listening to your breathing.
The first night I’ve not had your touch, a cuddle or just a hand resting nearby.
The first night you’ve been in a separate room to me, sleeping peacefully.
The first night without your warm little body curled into mine as you drift off.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My heart broke and I could’t stop crying.
I missed you so much even though you were only a wall away. I was so scared incase I did’t hear you, or if there was a powercut or something happened.
I cuddled your favourite mouse teddy and looked at the space bedside me.
The bed had never felt so empty. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it all went well. You slept from around 9pm until 3/4am, then came in bed for cuddles. I still need your cuddles, your warmth, your breaths but hopefully i’ll cope a little better tonight knowing that you will still call for me, still need me and of course I will always be there for you.
