Before my own

Wee one, rocking in my arms
You are before my own
Unconditional love as this, you wouldn’t see no harm
My baby on loan

Hold onto me as I sing to you
Chuckle, grunt, be free
I’d be that too
You are here before my own

Coo at me, smile a river’s breadth
You mightn’t remember times as this
But you’ve molded me nurturer
Practising for when my own seed is sown
