She asks for a kiss
So I give her one

She asks for a hug
So I give her one

She laughs and squeals
As I put the seat belt on her

Until next week

Her blue eyes
Shine from the car light

And off she goes
Into the night and right

To her crib

Her place of solace
And dreams


Author's Note: For my 2 year old niece

This one captures the love one feels for another family member. You could have as easily been speaking about one's own child... the emotional connection was so strongly communicated. aloha

Beautiful poetic snapshot of cherubian innocence. They don't stay that way for very long, but as they develop and mature, so does the relationship. Thanks for sharing this.
