Before the adventures of a new day

I
Climb
step by step
the staircase higher
Towards  your little room

Drowsy confusion, son of his mom
The morning light attacks your face,
Dive back into the
Mattress.

Little hands protect your eyes
Crawl…reach up…up…
searching mine
Fishing down,
Touch,
then lift-off                                  in the air.

 
Cheek by cheek we walk down
Your head resting on my shoulder
A short moment to treasure
Your baby softness to capture
with all my senses 
in my mind for the rest of the day.

“Dada baaaaah?”
Your eyes start looking around
Glittering with excitement

For the adventures of the new day.
