Friendship, family /
I wake to find you on my bed
Patient and biding your time
Waiting for my eyes to open
Signalling the end of the time that's mine
Now I belong to you once more
And you're desperate to know what I'll say
An answer to a burning question
That was the first thought of your day
"Why is it that the sun and moon
Sometimes share the same sky?"
And "Why do Eskimos touch noses
To say hello and goodbye?"
"How old do you have to be
Before you can count to a hundred?"
And "Do the people in the TV watch you
While you watch them?" he wonders
An undiluted stream of consciousness
Spills unfettered from your core
You bear no mind to right or wrong
Because you're only four!
Could there be a more beautiful sight
Waking up to his gorgeous beam
My inquisitive child perched on my bed
His curiosity flows like a stream
He's never stopped asking questions
Only now they're much more deep
Like, "Do I really have to get up?"
And, "What is there to eat?"

This is pretty awesome! The inquisitive curiosity of children is always entertaining. They often do and say some crazy things but bring much joy in the process. Fun read! Great job!

Thanks so much Jon :-) x
Kitty, this is awesome! Keep this, your son will love reading this about himself when he is older! Perfect.
Thanks Walter. He's actually 17 now and I wrote this after we were reminiscing the other night. Kids always love talking about when they were little. Thanks for your lovely comments :-) x
Lovely reading some of your recent poems in tribute to your son. its lovely writing about our children, and this is a beautiful one, with a nice and humorous ending.
Thanks so much Michael, he's my superstar! :-) x
Miss Kitty, this is just lovely! Beautifully rhymed and oh so sweet!
Aw, you nominated it Brenda! That's really lovely, thank you so much! :-) xx
Love! Makes me wonder, at what age do we stop being so curious about everything? Lol
Thanks Liz! To be fair, he's not stopped yet, but I guess Google has the answer to most of his burning questions these days :-) x
