Eight (4)

1 often I say foolish
things, let’s not talk
just hold my hand and look
at me, I’ll shut up
2 if I won’t let you
kiss me, just bring me
lilies from the
garden, I’ll smile
3 I lie in bed and won’t get
up, let’s have breakfast
in bed
4 if I’m crying, please
kiss me!
5 if you cuddle the cat
instead of me
that always makes
me laugh
6 if I try to leave
again
pick me up, hold me
don’t let me go
7 if I say
leave me alone
don’t go
please stay
8 then take my hands
put them
on your face you know
I love the touch
of your beard
then I’ll be alright
I got you
