Then You Hug Me

Why is it that you cannot get out of bed?
I look at your eyes and see
That you are lost in your sleepy head.
It's breakfast time and I know that
I'll have to chase you down the stairs again.

Then you hug me.

Hurry, hurry! Late again!
You have your pants around your ankles;
Your nose buried deep in a book.
Blankly, you blink at me as I cry out!
You leap to your feet and

Then you hug me.

Put your coat on, take your shoes off,
Where's your lunch box? 
Where's your bag
Hang your coat up!
"Oh, I forgot"

Then you say sorry and run off.

Dinner is getting cold and you are
Lost in your lego.
Deep in your comic.
Lost in the TV or
Playing flash games on the PC.
Or maybe making cardboard castles,
Dreaming of heroes, robots or spaceships,
Teddy bears become Superheroes

... and I am SO CROSS!

Then you hug me.
