Amidst the busy hours
of running around chasing my tail endless forking out meeting needs hugs and kisses bumped knees shouting laughing toast and jam fireside stories bedtime waking up time bath time homework dinner washing clothes cakes birthdays coffee driving nagging hugging walking breathing dreaming loving loving loving...
Little ones are good at getting their needs met.
Some nights I would go to bed,
Did I have any one to one conversation with him today?
But now we have an hour
in the pre~dawn quiet before the house awakes,
before he leaves for school.
And I am amazed.
Who is this young man?
This young man.
