Busy cafe’s, happy laughter makes for merry days.
The pattering feet of wobbly toddlers
who’s early years pass in a haze.
It’s great to be a busy bee, to chat away for hours
but sometimes it is wonderful to just stop.
Stay at home, bake a cake and watch the birds outside
sit and dream or eat ice-cream
and go to play on the slide.
Life is precious, hold it close
moments made of ice.
Time melts away
and toddlers grow
thrown in the world like dice.
Take time now
enjoy each day
love the babble and tea.
Cherish each moment
of dribble and goo and
remember each scratch of the knee.
This is a special time.
