Twisting and twirling
Dark brown soft and smooth
The smell of my hands now sweet and sticky
Mommies little girl
Just making mommy happy
Running her locks through my little fingers
Her hair spray and shampoo overwhelming me
Inhaling the spicy scent of her pillow
Her clothes
Her hair
The smell of safety and home
Of warmth and love
Mommies little girl
Being mommies little sunshine
Making mommy happy
Play with her hair
Smelling the rising aroma
Love surrounds me
Warmth fills me
Safety with mommies smell

The author's comments:
You know when someone hugs you and they have a certain scent? Well that smell means so much to me. That means I am safe in their arms. I don’t know how to describe it. But, my mother is one of the most important people to me and when I hug her I know that I am always safe when my mom’s smell fills the air.
