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

As always Skat, an excellent write from your pen. From the title to the end of the piece you lead us on the journey and what a touching journey it is my friend. In this piece you use the free verse form to its complete potential. This is a seven for sure and into my faves it goes....Vladislav.

I could really relate to the emotions conveyed in this creative piece SKAT. I don't think anyone can understand what this feels like unless they have suffered from it. I unfortunately passed this to all three of my daughters. This is a beautiful poem! #7

Ha ha loved it and the PMS bit at the end was a nice twist. I was drawn by the title and was not disappointed.

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" A truly delightful piece, Thanks so much for sharing. xoxoxoxo Robert
