I mentioned in a previous post about reading The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole and one of the things she suggests is keeping a poetry journal. Now, I have never tried to write poetry before but thought I would give it a shot. Trying to capture a moment without a photo. I kind of like it. :)
Stay....just a little bit longer, you say.
Stay my little girl, just a little bit longer, I think.
Can we do this forever, you ask?
Yes, I answer with all my heart.
Stay, I'll stay and watch you fall asleep.
Our nighttime ritual - once an aggravation, now a precious time of secrets and hugs. I want to hold onto that moment forever.
Give that sleeping child a kiss for me and thanks for letting me share my heart this morning.
