Arriving Home. - Poem by David Taylor

I want to grow up big and strong like you
so I ate all my supper, the broccoli too;
and here's two stickers I kept
to give to you when you come home
and here's the jigsaw I did all on my own!
And later I want you to build again
that track for Thomas my train;
oh and here's a big hug and a BIG kiss
to make sure you know that it's you that I missed!
And mum said I must put away all of the bricks
before we can play with the cars,
can you do that, when mum gives me bath?
And dad let me put your shoes away
because you're not going out again today!
