My little one

My little one loves to have fun before the day is done and the night takes the sun
climbing trees, running around the breeze and most active activities
sometimes he cries and sometimes he just wants to read
I listen to his wants and needs and in case he falls and scrapes his knees
I sit with him and his upset
he reminds me of curiosity and the importance of recess
My little one has an imaginary friend named DJ
they play, in a marching band that stands in the rafters
his favorite sound is giggles and laughter
his favorite food is tacos and those big bowls of ice cream on hot summer days

My little one listens to my pains and aches
and takes time to let me know it is ok to make mistakes
he has dreams of growing up to be an important successful man
even though these are things he really doesn’t understand
He does what he can
He likes to play basketball with friends
and explore the forest behind his house
sometimes him and his friends pretend to be a tyranasorous or a mouse

My little one is pretty smart and has a really big heart
he feels responsibly for everything that he starts
and I remind him that not everything needs to be finished
he can change him mind in a few hours or in a few minutes
not everything is set in stone
he doesn’t have to always be right because he does know everything that is known
next year he is going to ride his bike to school
My little one makes me proud and I think he is pretty cool

When I am on my way to work sometimes I get a smile and a smirk
thinking of the old days and memories playing so joyful and happy
that boy still lives inside me and I start peddling my bike a little faster
I can go back and relive, re imagine and re connect
anytime I want to check on my little one and look after
my little one has tried to protect me and now I get to be there for him
a best friend that lives within and inside, I am glad he is still alive
