Toddler Sky

-Toddler Sky-

Down where I sleep, 
You hold me, embrace my every way
The Marks up on my skin
You caress, taking away from the ugliness

Watching the simple breath, when I breathe
Breaking the ice, soothing my inner peace
A sweet spray across the paleness in my limbs
Holding the warmth, I've been loved throughout my life.
From picking up sticks to the walking stick
My loving dear I know you will always be there
A few wheel chairs, when broken bones mend
You know my every cure*
Walk with me across the hall
Through the oldness, and the boldness of every color in the sky
Thank you for taking me as I am
A light twinkle' every time I feel the colors of the rainbow drip
Now a newborn takes his form
In you I find the strength to stretch my arms and reach for every star

When happy moments fail, 
I embraced the colors I found in you
I make out every tree, and wonder why and how?
I close my eyes to imagine the fun of chasing fireflies
Tonight I'm keeping my prayers simple, cute, and innocent
I will count sheep and search for sweet lullaby dreams
Smiling like a 3 year old this very moment, 
You think I'm having "Baby Blues."
My loving dear, thanks for having patience,
Painting my way down a toddlers sky
Every time  "P M S" hits

~SKAT~

    SKAT What a unique and interesting write. The imagery and descriptiveness is so real and vivid that it pulls the reader from beginning to end. Thank you for the lovely comment on my Moon Madness poem

    Hi SKAT; Am going to devote most of my morning to reading poetry, and am pleased I chose this one to begin with. It is so poignant-then you "flip the script" in the last line, "Every time "P M S" hits"...smile. A truly delightful piece, Thanks so much for sharing. xoxoxoxo Robert

    My heart buckled when I felt all the sincerity and gratitude in this amazingly original and childlike poem Skat. Childlike in its happiness to work with life for what it is, the dream you share with others. Too many beautiful and original lines to highlight, Fav. J.A.B.
