Poetry – Catching Kisses – Tyneisha Ternent

“…feet pattering hard, with her little baby run.”

Catching Kisses

Stuck at home with my little one.
Daycare is closed so I find other ways for us to have fun.
I take her out back and we play in the sun;
her feet pattering hard with her little baby run.
Day 1 was easy and so was 2 to 30.
But after those days I started to worry.
My baby should be with other babies,
exploring and learning;
and I should be working, not feeling like a burden.
But I quickly realized to look at the glass half full.
If I could catch kisses from my little one, in one day I’d have a pocketful.
These precious moments I get with my child
are priceless and for that I smile.
Quarantine with a child can be tough,
but I wouldn’t change a thing, and I’d do it again for my little one, my love.
