Sweet Like Sugar

SWEETIE PIE (written for my daughter, Alexa)

 

How do you make a sweetie pie

Is it something you can bake?

 

Are there special things that go in it

Do you frost it like a cake?

 

What are the ingredients

That make it taste so sweet?

 

I imagine there’s no dirt or bugs

Or socks from smelly feet

 

Maybe there’s my mama’s grin

And my daddy’s silly laugh

 

Some flowers and some bumblebees

A kissie and a half

 

I know I’d add some polka dots

Some red and green and blue

 

A trip to a big parade

Amusement park and zoo

 

I want to make a sweetie pie

As sweet as sweet can be

 

I ask my mama and she laughs

Says a sweetie pie is me

How totally wonderful. One could not ask for more.
A delight to the soul, a joy to the mind, and a bubble filled with rainbows that emanate the love you have for your children.

Thank you so much for sharing.

I would not have had this delight, had you not left a comment behind my comment on Cactus Petunia’s Buenos Burritos blog. Thank you much!
Michele
