Pawpaw short poem

Photo by kelly.sikkema

Sit next to me Pawpaw
A small voice commands.
Read to me Pawpaw.

Read it again Pawpaw,
A small voice commands.
Do not skip a word.

Chase me Pawpaw,
A small voice commands.
Lord, I’m tired.

Snack time Pawpaw
A small voice commands.
I want a cookie.

Hold me Pawpaw,
A small voice commands,
I sleepy, he says.

An angelic smile
Graces his face.
A harsh taskmaster is a 4 year old.

I was wondering where this was all going, the last line brought a smile to my face. And no I don’t have children…
