Don't Miss It Today
Have you seen little beautiful butterflies?
All yellow, yellow and red, and all red ones
Bet you can't say who among them the prettiest is.
Eyes are bright buttons like, bows on hair big and small,
A cute little snack bag on one petite shoulder
Clinging to the parent’s or grandparent’s hands.
One of them at times seems to be a little less cheery with
One or two drops on rosy red cheeks
Dear Mamma hugging and consoling
Daddy cool pretending as not seen it.
See them running round and round the pillar
Singing the good old ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’
Sometimes ‘Asha Busha’ and one will fall down
As they wait for the school van to come
Adding more shine to the porch than the gleaming morning sun
Is there any better blessing we can ask for than these little chatterboxes?
Fill your hearts today with this daybreak scene
For tomorrow the children will grow up, lose all their innocence
Become young men and women and far away they will go,
It’ll be even beyond Mars, today’s most distant place
Therefore don’t miss it today!
