A Year of Smiles – Day 257

Reason to SMILE #257: READING

Mommy, won’t you read to me?

I love to hear you speak.

Your voice calms me when I’m tired

And helps me drift to sleep.

Mommy, won’t you read to me?

I have so much to learn.

I’ll look at all the pictures

While I take in ev’ry word.

Mommy, won’t you read with me?

This is my favorite book!

I know we’ve read it tons of times –

Please! Just one more look.

Mommy, won’t you read with me?

I’m practicing, you see.

I might miss a word or two

But I know that you’ll help me.

Mommy, let me read to you!

This story is brand new

And I can read ev’ry word.

Daddy’s proud – aren’t you?

Mommy, let me read to you!

I know you’re awfully busy.

I’ll help by reading while you work

To make the time pass quickly.

Mommy, won’t you read with me?

I miss our reading time.

It made me feel so special

To have you by my side.

Mommy, can I read to you?

I know you’re tired and weak.

I’ll read with you and show my love

Just like you did for me.
