Little Lad

April 19th: Today I woke up to see my two-year-old boy smiling at me. Even though it was early and I was tired, it was great. So this poem is dedicated to him.


Little Lad

Waking up and
Seeing your smile,
Makes early morning
Seem worthwhile.

Watching you run,
And play, and dance,
Makes up for having
To change your pants.

Coloring eggs
And making a mess,
Makes me feel joy
And relieves my stress.

Seeing you nap
Like a good little lad,
Makes me proud
To be your Dad.
