Poem for Boo-Bean

One little smile and
all the sorrows of
a bad day melt away,
dropping like juice
onto the couch
as little feet dance
in an excited homecoming.

Mommy mommy
(chanting happily)
and more kisses than
my heart can possibly
process... her face lit
up with absolute joy.
Be present; be here.

My little imp,
my circus star,
my silly little monkey:
You are a shining truth
in days of light and dark.
My path gratefully entwined
with yours forever.
