Little Love

Come, little child, into my arms

wipe away the tears you haven’t shed

hold me close, hold me tight

 

Dear child, I know the things you haven’t

things you’ve never seen, or felt, or heard

Come, little child, into my arms

 

Stroke my hair, little one, and smile

I’ll believe you when you tell me it’s okay

hold me close, hold me tight

 

Kiss away these troubles, little Love,

sooth these scars and heals these wounds

Come, little child, into my arms

 

Come, little child, into my arms

hold me close, hold me tight

I need you, my darling, as you need me

to hold you close, to hold you tight

One thought on “Little Love

  1. I love when poems use repetition that isn’t quite exact but still there; like here with the use of “little love, little child, little one.” It just seems so much more real, gives the child depth like any other character through nothing more than the vehicle of its mother’s endearment. Plus, i love lullabies, and this piece has that kind of feel for me. You seem very comfortable as a poet Kelsey, and rightfully so. Beautiful work.
