my sweet daughter…
flowers delight you
in the yard and on the table
and you remind me to
say yes

 

you dress in brightly-colored stripes and polka dots
twirling and romping in cowgirl boots
and you remind me to
say yes

 

my sweet son…
dragons and physics fascinate you
the fantastical and the factual
and you remind me to
say yes

 

you run with abandon
with an energy i cannot seem to match
and you remind me to
say yes

 

my sweet children…
in my wildest dreams
i had no idea how much the two of you would
shape, mold, and craft me
stretch, test, and love me

 

i say to you here
with dedication to you here
with all of me, i
say yes

 

from me to you, here and now…
