I do this for you

As I tuck my son into bed tonight, he wraps his little brown arms around me; like branches, his long thin arms cling to my shoulders. I watch him stare off into the darkness, drifting off to sleep. I can hear him breathe, his patient heartbeat knows I’m still sitting on the edge of the bed. I whisper my love for him. Rising to walk away, I think to myself, “I do this for you.”
