I thought I would continue the poetry theme and share with you a poem I wrote for my daughter when she was 3 years old going on 4. My son Nicholas even put it to music and will attempt to put the link on this page, but if it fails and you are interested, please email me and I will attach it for you.
I watch you from a few feet away
Sitting there on the rug as you innocently play
Surrounded by Lego, toy animals and the like
You have even managed to dismantle your bike.
I watch as you struggle to eat
It’s Spaghetti, your favourite treat
Some goes in your mouth, but most on the floor
Your mother has a chuckle as she looks round the door.
I watch as you bath
All your toys in tow
Water everywhere, even on me
I love your laughter, oh such glee.
I watch as you snuggle down in your bed
Waiting for your story to be read
You have fallen asleep, you’re looking content
Tomorrow we will know where it is “Noddy” went.
I watch as you sleep
Breathing deep and slow
I look at you and wonder where you go
I kiss your cheeks, your forehead too
Oh my Lucy, I do love you.

Like I said, if you want the music version, email me. :)
Well you know I'm an Author, so you keep reading, and I will keep writing :)
