Life is Funny, but Not Today

 

I came home from work at 10 PM and climbed in my sons crib.
I lay down with him.
He opens a sleepy eye and smiles and says, “oh hi Mama.”
Then curves his little body into mine.
He could be an olympic level spooner.
I rub my face into the back of his hair.
Trying to breath him in.

The Fall night is still and dark.
I shut my heavy eyes.
All the tears I held in for days finally spilled over.
The back of his pajamas became wet with overflowing tears.
He didn’t even flinch.
Completely content with my heart beat snuggling his.

My eyes so heavy.
My mind still running like the midnight train.
What a dangerous place to be, alone with your thoughts tonight.

Why them not me?
Why them not me?
Some one’s child.
My friend.

 

HUG YOUR KIDS PEOPLE.
 
 
 
Then GO HUG YOUR DOG.



 

I’ll be okay, just not today.
