Sophia's poem

SOPHIA’S POEM


Cheerios across the floor
Pen marks on the walls
Paint on my new carpet
I can’t take it all!

Books touched by jammy fingers
Chocolate on my cat
Boogies on my sofa
Who could live like that?

Bedtime’s like a war zone
Toothache, sore head, sore thumb
Can’t sleep, not tired, I’m hungry 
I want to see my Mum!

Start over in the morning
The Cheerios again!
One sock, one shoe, no jumper
Late for school again!

Then there are those moments
When we spend time alone
Colouring or building blocks
And I see how she’s grown

She’s the one I need
Whenever I am blue
No ones hugs can love me
The way Sophia’s do

For a little girl of seven
She’s really full of wit
And because of all she gives me
The mess?
I can live with it!

    How adorable. She sounds like a sweetie. A very heart warming write my dear Vikki. I guess I missed this previously.
