The Child In You
Today’s poem is one that I publish every time I get to spend time with my favorite person in the whole wide world - my niece!
We live in different countries, and get to hang out once every year, so sharing this poem I wrote for her back in the day ends up being a marker in time for me. I fondly remember the last time I shared this poem, after she and I had visited a castle together. Or the time before that, when we had played with balloons.
This time, I’m just about done with work for the day, and we’re going to play Mario Kart on her Nintendo Switch! My heart is full of joy and gratitude on seeing this little girl become a fully grown human being.
Alright, the poem starts in 3… 2… 1!
“Googoo gaga aww you're so sweet! Look at your tiny hands and feet! I'll smush your rosy chubby cheeks, and laugh with you in gentle shrieks! At noon we'll play a silly sport. At night we'll build a blanket fort. I'll lift you up and run around, and when you nap, I'll make no sound. I love you, love you, love you so!" You say it as you watch them grow. You know it's right, you know it's true. A child brings out the child in you.
That's it for today.
Thanks for reading edition no. 125 of Hello Universe. The last time I’d met her, Hello Universe was just 64 weeks old!
See you next week, when I plan to bring back “Some fun stuff”. Gonna go play some Mario Kart now, haha!
