Different Spaces for Different Ages: Eight Years Old
Eight Years Old
There once was an eight year old girl who
always danced for the moon as she grew
a friendly observer
along with her father
who would smile as he watched her dance too.
The importance of sharing her love
she gave her brother her baseball glove
just to bring him to smile
while he played ball awhile
as she winked to the clouds up above.
Through her play she found time to snuggle
even though she can’t stop her wiggle
her Mom holds her tighter
the best wiggle fighter
with Mom it’s never a struggle.
Near her bed she hides all her candy
she keeps chocolate always handy
for when she feels the blues
or receiving good news
eating sweets makes her feel just dandy.
So much love to give to my daughter
whether running or playing soccer
when laughing with her friends
when the fun never ends
she will always know we love her.
