Blanket forts and other things

 

 

So it has been a very long time since I attempted any poems and I am slightly rusty. However I have been thinking of this one for a few days and decided to put it down in writing. These are just some of the things I hope to never forget about the toddler days, as I know all to soon they will be over. 
Blanket forts
Cheeks flushed from play, hair all askew

 

Squeals of delight as they discover wonders anew

 

A magical kiss that cures every ail

 

Imaginary sand beaches, buckets and pails

 

The kitchen table turned blanket fort, mess all around

 

Another shoe missing, to never be found

 

“Mommy, Mommy” said hundreds of times of day

 

Eyes closed, heads bowed,  as they start to pray.

 

Climbing and clinging on you like monkey bars

 

Whatever you are doing they never are far

 

A babe in each arm, a pile of dishes in the sink

 

Chaos and noise till you can’t hardly think.

 

Exhaustion to a level that you never could dream

 

And a heart so full it might burst at the seams

 

The relief you feel when they both fall asleep

 

The whole new appreciation for quiet and peace

 

You stand over their beds and watch as they slumber

 

The ways they have blessed you could never be numbered

 

You think of the moments the good and the bad

 

All of the joy, stress, love and tears that this one day had

 

And you hold them close, hide them in your heart

 

And pray you will never forget even one tiny part

 

As they say the nights might be long but the years they are short

 

And you will never regret a day spent in a messy blanket fort.
