you will be able to tell me why you find this particular necklace, out of all Mama’s shiny jewelry, to be your favorite
why you hide your toys for me to discover amongst my daily chores
and furthermore, why every time I turn on the vacuum, you run to retrieve this card and pretend to feed in into the bottom crevice
why you prefer to arrange the lotions just so on the nightstand alarm clock
where you learned to swaddle your babies and take such good care of them
what you really think when you confidently pat this cow
and this lamb
and do you really think its name is “baaa”, or are you just trying to impress us with what you know?
Someday you will tell me what is going on in your pretty head. Because I’m dying to know.
Whatever it is, I am sure that is derived from the most lovely things on earth.
I can’t wait to become a part of your magical little world, little one.
