I find it hard to articulate

There’s nowhere else I’d rather be

Laughing with little stars in your eyes

Holding a fleeting moment of time


Chatter box of non-sense words

Playing with imaginary friends

Views of a world as a Pirate adventure

Princess gowns with crowned jewels


Moments held tight in my heart

Among toothless grins with dimple quotations

Stay seven forever my lil one

Stamped in your childhood brilliance
