Today I didn’t wake up when you called out to play instead I lulled you to sleep so that I could get more shut eye.
Today we skipped bath time as I said, “what’s one day?” because I stayed up too late last night and just couldn’t bring myself to bathe you.
Today I only played with you once and repeatedly tried to take you out of my arms instead of let you lay with me.
And now can’t take back the hours where you needed me and I wasn’t there for you because I didn’t put you first.
I will never let that happen again. I will always put you first
