Right now, I am small




















Right now, I am small.
Things are simple with a single tiny focus.
Earthly eyes are not yet in my possession.
I am simply loved, by all who see me.

Right now, I am small.
There is no clue about my future.
My crib is a home that I love to be in.
Warm kisses great me all day long.

Dad comes and goes.
Mom always knows ~ my every need.
Grandma with sweet songs.
Grandpa plays ping-pong ~ with my toes.
For right now, I am small.

And with the wonders of a wide-eyed babe, what future holds for the small in the big world.

Thank you for your thoughtful words, Dixie.

Thanks Gary. Sometimes it's difficult staying in the present, avoiding the worry of any future. But staying in the present is the best thing for me.

My best to you, Penny, and Tristan. Thanks for visiting me. :)

We can only be where we are right now, it's where we are meant to be.

As for the baby: I wish they were all that lucky.

Hi Dixie. That's lovely; I like babies!
I see you have "come out" with a picture. Good for you.

Mike, you and me too. :)

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Thank you Fran :)
P.S., I'm working on those figurines. LOL

Bazza, babies are so unpredictable.
Yep, the photo is a couple of years old actually. My hair is back to mousey brown... waiting for a new camera... but I'm no spring chicken!! Bok.

Thanks Petronela! My passion is writing for children. Lots of little stories of mine out there somewhere. :)

I'm afraid I agree with Mike --- if only all babies were that lucky.

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Hi Cheerful Monk.
This child really tickles me. I guess you could say he is very lucky.
Thank you for visiting me.

Love to you all.
