Little Brother

Little Brother
You tap dance loudly on our wood floor
Wishing you were Fred Astaire
Wear Superman PJs, pretending to save the world
Climb up on my lap to cuddle
Stroke my hair with your soft little hands
Run away laughing as we play hide and seek
Peeking through your fingers as you count to 100
Hug me like a koala bear when I come home from school
Sigh quietly in your sleep
Collect bugs and proudly show them off
Watch the birds at our feeder patiently, never making a sound
Write stories about your stuffed animals
Act like an angel
You’re my precious little brother
. . . . .
