Our Patio


A baby sleeping in my arms
Two concrete lions, standing guard
Tall leafy sycamores letting go of bark
Our front patio is a relaxing park

The round green bushes are growing thick
I'm listening to the crickets tick
Who knew the front yard could be such bliss
While the kids are young and I can't miss a kiss

Even when they grow older, bigger, stronger
And I have time to go further longer
I think I will be back here on our patio
Looking at photos of when they were younger
