tiny poem tuesday

what do you do?...

when your youngest,
your baby,
shyly crawls out of bed
to whisper that
he just needs a
little cuddle?


snuggly pajama clad,
wiggling this way and that,
until --
his back curves perfectly
into your torso
his head still fitting
under your chin,
soft hair tickling your jaw


inhale
and catch a trace
of the cookies you
made earlier,
remembering
how intently he licked
that bowl


what do you do?
