I’m Walking Mammy

‘I’m doing my perfect best, standing growing tall

Holding onto mammy’s dress,

So I’m safe and do not fall.

 

There’re giants everywhere I look

Wow, mammy, their heads are hiding the sun

Will it ever play again?’

 

‘Ahh, how pretty is your darling child

How old again is she?’

‘We are all pretty little girls

Mammy, look

My dress has sunshine sparkles in it.’

 

Down she falls

 

Gentle loving fingers, grasped tightly too

‘Now my toes are safely down

On this carpet warm.’

 

Fingers gently urging on

One step, two, three and four?

‘Look Mammy?

Quick!

I’m walking. I’m walking just like you!’

 

‘Catch me quick, with your soft sweet kiss?’

 

Confidence now in leaps and bounds

With every tiny little step.

Smiles, giggles, dancing twirls

As now caught the sunbeams morning rays

Decorate her dress.
