YOUR WAYS AND WORDS

(for Li'l A)

The way
your eyebrows
turn significant and underline
all your juicy information


The way
your giggles stretch
An extra syllable ‘cos you’re
Too happy to stop laughing


The way
you wiggle into clothes
Like a mop-haired, lovable whale
With (I counted it) four love handles


The way
you look at us in the mirror dancing
As if remembering it
for when you’re older or sadder


The way
you say I love you
(and not just I love you too)
More than any other child does

The way
You love to be cuddle-ey
And for inventing the back-hug,
the quick cuddle, and the come-back cuddle
