Bundled Cutie

My heart
skips a beat
when I stop
to think
about my
sweet
bundled cutie
stepping bravely
into a world
that’s hard
to meet
so early
he hits
the streets
walking
his own
beat
he’s a free
spirit
a rascal
he loves
to hassle
he’s the king
and key
to my castle
a culinary master
he makes
one helluva
salad
and picks
lovely ballads
to tickle
his folky
pallet
which he
empowers
me to practice
for hours
he’s the keeper
of all that’s ours
all the beauty
in a sky
full of stars
he’s smart
works hard
and carries
us far
and with
him I hate
to part
and one
day
we’ll be
old farts

together
