He is...

He’s the smile when I walk through the door
He’s the “I love you” when I’m running off to work late
He’s the left side of our bed every evening

{He’s the giggle when he recognizes I’m home
He’s the tug on my heart as I walk away
He’s the midnight wakening I’m glad to hear}

He’s the oil changer, the garbage man, and the litter box cleaner
He’s the common sense in a split second decision
He’s the first to push my buttons during an argument

{He’s the tiny fingers grasping onto my shirt
He’s the curled toes learning to crawl
He’s the screamer I can’t bare to hear}

He’s the vulgar, cursing sailor who lives up to the reputation
He’s the sweet words no on else knows how to speak
He’s the entire dresser full of clothes

{He’s the smirk inherited from his father
He’s the vegetables bought at every grocery trip
He’s the first thought for any plans made}

He’s the head of our household
He’s the reason we travel so much
He’s the reason choices are out of our control

{He’s the center of infatuated, adored parents
He’s the life that brings the most pride
He’s the inquisitive eyes as he figures out something new}

He’s the fit thrower when he hits his knee on the coffee table
He’s the one who knows better than to say “calm down”
He’s the best french toast cooker I know

{He’s the crinkled nose at a yucky taste
He’s the constant screech cause he just learned how
He’s the arms reaching for me in the midst of a temper tantrum}

They are the epitome of everything beautiful in this world
They are the reason life never seems to hit rock bottom
They are the holders of my soul

They are the reason I’ll never understand what I did right to deserve God planting them in my life
