Moments of magic

Magic happens when I least expect it

Never when I’m trying so hard to make it

And when I’m in it,

and I recognize

Fightin’ so hard to stay in it

I wanna grab it

hold onto it

The baby’s scent

Squishy little hand in mine

One more kiss

Watching tv

with my oldest, talking design


For a tickle

and a tuck-in at the age of ten

When they reach for me

Not thinkin’

Just being boys instead of men

Then it’s magic

It sneaks up on me

And takes my breath away


Not forced

Or squeezed into my busy day

The clock stops

I’m suspended

Until those gods up there press PLAY ▶️
