Poetry: Little Boo

Big brown eyes melt my heart, The way you look at me, Makes me count my blessings twice.

Tiny waves of black and white, The way you feel so soft, Gives me comfort inside.

My little Boo, I love you and can only say thank you for the way you’ve touched my life.

You are my sweet little angel, my comfort in this crazy time.

You’ve brought a million and one smiles when otherwise good was hard to find.

This world is lucky to have your kind; we learn from you and no doubt you are here to help us improve.

Because of you my heart has grown in size, thank you sweet Boo for being you. ❤

In the Middle of the Night

Wide awake in the middle of the night,

Can’t sleep, can’t get you off my mind.

No saying how this story will go,

No saying when these thoughts quiet down.

I’ve tossed and turned and tried to think

Of a way to make wrongs become right.

But the more I try the harder it seems,

To rewrite a story without any flaws.

It’s not easy to confront the storm inside.

It’s not so easy but I stay this fight

For otherwise I find myself dead awake

Consumed with you in the middle of the night.
