Hold Tight

Hold Tight

I lightly caress
soft curve of cheek and chin,
a nose boyish,
a brow silky smooth
like the surface of a gentle pond.

My finger paints his morning face, 
tickles tips of lashes long,
gently circles soft brown eyes 
reflective of hopes and dreams 
of we who love him.

Soak in toothless smile
and arms fervently hugging,
close my eyes;
hold tight this moment
of seven year old boy.

Does not every Mom cherish one childhood time of each of her children... you certainly captured that very moment.

Brother Ollie said...

It is good to focus on these moments. My older boys would not allow this anymore!

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Well then.. this certainly depicts your boundless love towards children :D
A heart-warming piece!

Lots of love,

A precious moment.. a moment to remember. Boys sometimes seem to harden to something else.. love the softness here.

How absolutely beautiful! (I am the mother of sons - though its a long time since they were seven.)

Total sweetness, bliss.

how lovely for you; i have one son, grown to fatherhood; i can remember though still snuggling and reading to him, but at a much younger age than seven; now i rewarded with sweet hugs from my grand daughter

thanks for sharing your sweet precious moments poesy-wise

much love...
