How long?


You come crying to me at night

My tummy hurts mommy.

Your face crumpled with pain

So sleepy

I hold out my arms

You crawl in to them

Put your head in my lap

And fall asleep.


And I wonder

How long will my lap solve all your problems

How long can my arms keep you from hurting

How long

How long?
