i see eager hands extend
like curious measuring tape
asking for another inch of attention
that you never fail to give.
they laugh, they tease,
their tiny hands grasp
at your unruly hair, and they love you
in the way that i love dandelion wishes and shooting stars,
and in the way that i love you, too.
that you can make happiness
the world's most contagious disease
makes you everything i want to
but might not ever be.

Good people generally tend to be the same people loved and adored by kids.
