You conjure a smile upon my face,
you lighten my heart,
when you proudly show me something you have painted
or do breakdance in the living room
when you insist on your snuggling session in the evening
or crawl into my bed in the early morning
when you tell me of your epic fight at Minecraft
or we talk about the last book we both have read
when you are humming you favourite melodie endlessly
or construct some weird machine from Lego
Then I know how happy I can be
to have such a treasure* in my life.
* First instinct was to write ‘precious’ but then I thought that sounded too much like Gollum.
I am talking about two different children here btw., even if that’s not mentioned.
