I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing

November 11, 2006 at 11:30 pm 30 comments

I haven’t been able to blog and bloghop this past week.  And I still can’t compose a coherent post.  Everyone in the family, including me, has/had a cough and cold. 

I intended to post this a couple of weeks ago when I saw Shoshana’s post on Dreaming.  And then last night I read about another blogger’s recent loss and I was deeply touched.  So please excuse me if I’m feeling a little bit sentimental today. 

Shoshana posted a picture of her daughter while she was sleeping.  I also love watching my kids in their sleep.  When each of my kids was still a baby, I would sometimes stay and lie there in bed after he had nursed and fallen asleep.  Or if he fell asleep in my arms or in his crib, I’d linger for a while and watch him sleep.  And I think every parent can relate to this when I say that it is the most wonderful feeling when your baby falls asleep on your chest.  You wouldn’t want to move for fear that you might wake him up and break that bond that you share when his chest is against yours and his heart beats against yours. 

That being said, here’s one of my favourite songs. 

I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing

By Aerosmith


 I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Well, every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure

I don’t wanna close my eyes
I don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I’d still miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing
Lying close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I’m wondering what you’re dreaming
Wondering if it’s me you’re seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we’re together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever

I don’t wanna close my eyes
I don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I’d still miss you, babe

And I don’t wanna miss a thing


I don’t wanna miss one smile
I don’t wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Don’t wanna close my eyes
Don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
‘Cause I’d still miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing


I don’t wanna close my eyes
I don’t wanna fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I’d still miss you, babe
And I don’t wanna miss a thing

Don’t wanna close my eyes
Don’t wanna fall asleep, yeah
I don’t wanna miss a thing.

    I love to watch my boy sleep too, when he was a baby and even now. I think all mothers do…

    Take care and rest well.

  • 2. ipanema  |  November 12, 2006 at 6:26 am

    I think watching our children sleep eases the exhaustion for the day. They are truly our treasures.

    Thanks for your thoughts on my recent loss.

    Hope you’ll all be feeling well soon.

    sweet. 🙂

  • 4. manilenya  |  November 12, 2006 at 10:52 pm

    naiiyak naman ako dito irene 😦 naalala ko ang anak ko,
    the last time na umuwi ako madalas tinatanghali ako ng gising tapos siya naman maagang-maaga pumapasok sa school, sabi ng pinsan ko na nag-aalaga sa kanya minsan daw bago pumasok nakauniform na pero humiga pa rin sa tabi ko at tinititigan ako 😦
    grabeh ka niceheart naiiyak tuloy ako 😦 sabi ko ang laki laki na ng dalawang taon na magkahiwalay kami.. I just wish in the near future magkasama na kami para wala ng mga bagay at panahon na mawala pa between us. Hayy!!!

  • 5. niceheart  |  November 12, 2006 at 11:06 pm

    Sesame, you too? I think then that every mothers watch their kids in their sleep.

    Ipanema, yeah, that is definitely one reason. Another one for me is I am just awed at the wonder of life.

    Thanks, ralphT.

    Naku, melai. Sorry at napaiyak kita. Medyo feeling sentimental din kasi ako. Grabe ka naman at nauna pang gumising ang anak mo. Baliktad tuloy at ikaw pa ang pinanood sa pagtulog. I also hope that you’ll be reunited soon. Cheers! 🙂

    I also watch my kids sleeping and wondering about the miracle of life.

  • 7. Toe  |  November 13, 2006 at 1:59 am

    What touching pictures Niceheart… sana ako na rin.

  • 8. eric aka senor enrique  |  November 13, 2006 at 2:26 am

    These are interesting pics of your boys sleeping 🙂

    That is a really swet song by Aerosmith. I still enjoy listening to it whenever I chance upon it on the radio.

    Get some rest and hope you feel 100% better tomorrow.

  • 9. zeroimpact  |  November 13, 2006 at 8:14 am

    A song that I like very much too
    The bond is great, between a parent and a child
    nothing can break that…

  • 10. Joy  |  November 13, 2006 at 10:48 am

    I love watching my kids sleep too!!!

    And I like that song very much but never really thought about singing it about my kids. But reading the lyrics interspersed with the pics, it really does connect!

    I just might make a scrapbook page about it.Thanks for the inspiration!

  • 11. Kyels  |  November 13, 2006 at 4:38 pm

    I love this song too … It really is meaningful. Watching people whom you love deeply, sleeping, is something nice to do though I have never experienced that before but I can feel the feelings running through my body if I were to do that one fine day.


  • 12. bw  |  November 13, 2006 at 11:12 pm

    Babies sleeping are just beautiful.. you can’t get tired watching them.

  • 13. niceheart  |  November 13, 2006 at 11:13 pm

    Ann, yes, me too. I still can’t get enough of how these babies came from me and how tiny they were and how big they are now.

    Thanks, Toe. Maybe you’ll have yours too soon. 🙂

    Thank you Eric. I’ve loved this song since the first time I’ve heard it.

  • 14. Leah  |  November 13, 2006 at 11:14 pm

    Pistures like these are such treasure. I still love taking photos of my little one when she’s asleep. Para kai nga talaga silang angel.. And yes, I relate to your sentimentality.

    Hope you fee better soon. I just finished getting over mine.

    btw, I’m adding you to my blogroll

  • 15. niceheart  |  November 13, 2006 at 11:17 pm

    That’s true, zeroimpact. It’s a very strong bond.

    You’re welcome, Joy. I’m glad this post gave you inspiration for a scrapbook page.

    Kyels, I’m sure you’ll experience that feeling too, one day. 🙂

    They are BW. It’s one of my favourite things to do.

  • 16. niceheart  |  November 13, 2006 at 11:19 pm

    Thank you Leah. I’m feeling better now but it’s my youngest one who’s still coughing. Poor boy.

    Thanks for the link. I’ve already added you to mine. 🙂

  • 17. Shoshana  |  November 14, 2006 at 1:51 pm

    niceheart, thank you!

    It’s amazing how fast kids grow. If we’re not paying attention, we could really missed a lot!

    I am glad to took gazillion pictures, and sorry for those days I didn’t.

    I too like watching my children sleep, hearing them breath, and seeing their faces as they dream. There’s nothing like it.

  • 18. Hsin  |  November 15, 2006 at 8:29 am

    Hey, that’s our song! Danny and I got together when Armagaddon was released. Even though I’m not an Aerosmith fan, that song really says it all, doesn’t it?

    I love to watch the kids sleep too. There’s an innocence about them, and no matter how trying or naughty they’ve been all day, they’re totally forgiven when I see them sleeping.

    Oh, and I’m sorry for being so sporadic about coming by. I’m somehow inexplicably too busy to blog hop these days.

  • 19. niceheart  |  November 15, 2006 at 10:16 pm

    Shoshana, that’s true. They grow up too fast. That’s why I also treasure every single moment.

    Hsin, yeah I remember your post about this song. I know what you mean about them being naughty and all. It’s all forgotten and forgiven at the end of the day. I understand that you’re busy. What with two little kids.

  • 20. JO  |  November 16, 2006 at 5:11 pm

    if only we could stop our kids from growing up…

    here’s a scrap of my kids sleeping too — http://scrapcollection.blogspot.com/2006/01/sleeping-time.html

  • 21. haze  |  November 16, 2006 at 6:01 pm

    This is just uncomparable! Those are exceptionally captured moments….i love taking pictures of my children too and keep it as a souvenir lalo na ngayon may digital cam di ba ! Hay naku time flies so fast and feeling ko tumatanda na ako 🙂 !

    Oooopppsss, I love that song and the film with Bruce Willis as the major actor !

  • 22. Sidney  |  November 16, 2006 at 7:25 pm

    Beautiful post!
    I hope you and your family get better soon. Nothing more annoying than running around with a cold!

  • 23. dee  |  November 16, 2006 at 11:07 pm

    Great post and wonderful pics. I love that song too.

  • 24. iskoo  |  November 16, 2006 at 11:43 pm

    get well soon…

    nakakatouch naman itong post mo, iba talaga feeling kapag nakikita mo mga anak mo na nakakatulog ng maayos at nakakapagpahinga 🙂

  • 25. Toe  |  November 18, 2006 at 3:43 am

    Niceheart, I clicked your name on your commnet on my blog entry about Woodstock, and I was directed to a different blog, not yours. I wonder why.

  • 26. niceheart  |  November 18, 2006 at 7:46 am

    Thanks, JO, for the visit. I like your scrapbook pages. I also wanted to learn how to make digiscraps but haven’t got the time.

    Haze, you also remember the movie ha. I know, how time flies talaga. And makes us feel old when we see them growing up.

    Thanks, Sidney. We are all feeling better now.

  • 27. niceheart  |  November 18, 2006 at 7:48 am

    Thanks, dee.

    Thank you, iskoo. Masarap talaga silang pagmasdan kaming natutulog at parang mga anghel. 🙂
