Snuggled up in bed
She's sitting right next to me,
Her smile contagious.
She kisses me on the forehead,
"But what about Old Aunt Addy?"
I give her my best puppy dog eyes.
"All right, but only one chapter."
She pretends not to remember so I yell,
"Riley and Sam had just saved the crystal!"
And this was my favorite part of the day.
Her hands were empty though - they held no book.
She spoke from the heart.
She saw the lines in the air, waiting to be read.
I listened intently,
As there was no way I was going to miss this.
