LOOK AT ME!
By David Milligan-Croft.
I was cradling you on my left hip;
Absentmindedly swaying from side to side,
As I talked to a fellow parent
In the school playground.
Slowly, you reached across
And clamped your hand over my mouth.
Your tiny fingers felt warm and sticky. Then,
Gently, you pulled my head to face you.
I looked down into your sparkling eyes,
Your perfectly beautiful face. And,
That was it.
That was all you needed.
