You’re So Full Of It!


energy to run around the first floor of the house
voice to sing and whine
strength to climb up and down the stairs
– a hundred times

charm to woo strangers at the store
sweetness to make new friends anywhere
smarts to get anything you want at all
– a thousand times more

where do you get
all of everything
and how do you keep
from exploding
because you’re so full of it

so full of everything nice
and all things loving
and all sorts of wonderful
and all kinds of amazing
– a bazillion times galore

my boy
my boy
how can there
possibly be more

yet each day
you grow
and show me
all the ways
you’ve become
more beautiful than before
– a gazillion squared, times four
