Mommy’s Lap – A Poem

From time to time I’ll share a poem I’ve written for children, often from the child’s point of view.

I wrote this poem after watching a very young child bravely try to adjust to the new baby who had recently joined the family.


Mommy’s Lap


I love my baby brother, Ben;

I really, really do.

It’s just that I remember when

My Mommy held me, too.


When Ben was in her tummy still,

I’d curl up on her lap.

We’d cuddle close and read until

We took a comfy nap.


I love my brother, Ben, you see;

I really, really do.

I just wish Mommy’s lap could be

Big enough for two!
