I Don’t Have Any Covers

January 25, 2012

Today, like all days, at way-too-early

After I’ve been up until way-too-late

I hear the click-click-click

Of Hayden turning off his night light

Then comes the pat-pat-pat

Of his flat little feet

And he climbs into my bed with a smile

But the sweet warm snuggle

Quickly turns to a struggle

With move your arm

And I don’t have any covers

And I threaten to kick him out

But I never actually do

Minutes of kicking jabbing complaining

Are followed by moments of softness

Interrupted by I’m hungry

Let’s go have some breakfast

    Perfectly written! Exactly how it works.

    Love this. I relish in the 5 seconds at a time they actually hold still.
