Hiding Under a Pile of Stuffed Animals

animalcontrol

It is still morning
have yet to have my coffee
and my little one sneaks up
arms full of stuffed animals
hugged tight
and he trusts me –
places two babies in my arms
and asks me to hug them
kiss them
and I do –
the smile that lights up his face
is worth all the gold in the world
and he watches to see
what I’ll do next
so I go about my day
his babies held lovingly in my lap
so he knows I care
and me – I’m trying to figure out
what to do,
’cause he keeps bringing more.

    love this poem, it brought a smile to my face and a warmth in my heart, and I thought yes what would I do, maybe it’s when One needs the wings of words in your other wonderful poem that I read! Best wishes and blessings, Charles.

        Yes it is indeed; today I turned 59, but don’t feel it even though I had no children. It was a wonderful poem though.

          Congratulations! As I get older, I learn that age is only a number (yeah, because I’m older) 🙂 thank you.

            Quite, but there are a few things that I can no longer do that I always used to be able to do, but one adapts as one goes.

            Well, we CAN do them, the problem is the consequences 🙂 I’m still trying to keep that younger spirit alive as long as I can. Still not doing anything crazy though… You know, in order to make sure I don’t fall apart 🙂

            Have tried to do as much as I can, but am having to cut back due to osteoarthritis in my hips, knees and shoulders. What is happening though is that I am doing different things to what I used to do, and I don’t see anything wrong with that, so for instance, instead of running I now walk.

            I know what you mean. There’s nothing wrong with that! Walking is actually great exercise.
