Hungry MAG

By Anonymous

Patrick races into
Afternoon day care,
Bellows "I'm hungry!
What's for snack?" and
Hugs me. I
Peel his little arms
Fromaround my legs,
So I can bend down
And return his HeartfeltHug.

The sun sets, and
Parents come.
But Patrick is still
"When will my dad be here?"
He asks, sitting on my lap
"Soon, I bet."
I lie
As I watch
Him color the same
Picture he's colored
All week.
He turns and hugs
Me, like before,
Squeezing so hard
I almost cry.
