In the gap-toothed smile
Or perhaps the brightening twinkle
In eyes, brimming with laughter!
In the brush of tender fingers
Wanting to hold your work callused hands
Or a wet slobbering kiss
Planted on an unsuspecting cheeks
A sudden hug
Strangulating from behind?
Or a trusting drowsing face, tucked into
The nape of your neck
Curled into you, cuddling softly…
Have you been blessed today
With the butterfly touch of a child?
