Goodnight baby boy

by Arissa

In this bright buzzing room full of sound,
it’s time for us to settle down. 
Pick up your toys to put away,
it’s time to clean not time to play. 
Get your games and your dump trucks too,
gather them up you know what to do. 
Clean your teeth and brush your hair. 
Your almost done, almost there. 
Now it’s time to head to bed
so you can lay down and rest your sweet head. 
I’ll sing you a song and read to you too
so you never forget just how much I love you. 

A mother’s letter

by Arissa

I can’t wait to meet you, please know this is true. 
I cant wait to kiss and cuddle you too. 
To hold you in my arms and snuggle you tight. 
To always love and protect you with all of my might. 
I know you will be beautiful loving and smart. 
You will fill my life with joy and my fridge with your art. 
You will run through the halls and mess up the place. 
Then look at me and smile with a mud covered face. 
You will fight with your brother. 
You will scream and yell. 
I know you two kids will put me through hell.
