A Poem for my CoSleeping Baby

When we go up the wooden hill
Direct to Bedfordshire
I know you want to snuggle up
It's your favourite desire

I've let you get away with it
By welcoming you in
Comfy, snuggled, nuzzled up
Warming your soft skin

But Now that you are mobile
And starting to break free
I worry you'll fall on the floor
When I get up to pee

Your Daddy's getting fed up
Of sleeping down the crack
Between the wall and bed my dear
It's breaking his old back

I love our little cuddles
They make me feel quite happy
Regret creeps in some mornings
When you've leaked out of your nappy

When you accidentally punch me
Or slap me in the face
I know it's time for you to go
And sleep some other place

Your cot is warm and snugly
With a blanket and a light
But you frown and shout quite loudly
When we put you in at night

I promise you it's safe my love
There's no monsters underneath
You will not get eaten up
By sharp and scary teeth

The cot's not made of lava
It will not burn your skin
Lightening will not strike you
The moment you get in

It's not full of broken glass
No rusty nails to be found
The universe will not implode
As you sleep safe and sound

It's not that I don't love you
I would give you the earth
We've shared our bed with you my love
Ever since your birth

I'd like to put you in your cot
Sneak across the floor
A glance over my shoulder
Before I gently close the door

And do a little victory dance
As to my room I creep
Climb in bed and close my eyes
To get some bloody sleep
