Mommy’s Lap – A Poem

by | Jan 15, 2015 | Books

From time to time I’ll share a poem I’ve written for children, often from the child’s point of view.
I wrote this poem after watching a very young child bravely try to adjust to the new baby who had recently joined the family.

Mommy’s Lap

I love my baby brother, Ben;
I really, really do.
It’s just that I remember when
My Mommy held me, too.

When Ben was in her tummy still,
I’d curl up on her lap.
We’d cuddle close and read until
We took a comfy nap.

I love my brother, Ben, you see;
I really, really do.
I just wish Mommy’s lap could be
Big enough for two!
