Little Palms


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the Author.

One day a teardrop will fall from the sky
And on that day, out of joy, I will cry
Within my arms I'll hold you tight
And as you open your eyes to me you'll know everything will be alright
One day I will plant my seed
And watch you grow into this love that I need
I'll come home from work and put your little palm in mine
We'll go for walks, talk, enjoy life, and forget about time
Put your little palm in my massive hand
I'll teach you the ways of life so that you'll understand
When you're sick and I've got sleepless nights
It'll be such a gorgeous sight to see you sleep in the middle of the night
When we come home from our walks in the park
And your mom's complaining about her stretch marks
We'll smother her with hugs and kisses and say she's still beautiful, so beautiful tonight
So put your little palm in mine and enjoy the night
Your love from me is worth more than gold
And it will continue to grow as you get old
Like the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon we'll stay out together and watch the moon
Tuck you in before you go to bed
Butterfly kisses upon your forehead
Never miss a dance recital or little league game and even if I did I'd love you all the same
So put your little palm in mine and come walk with me
My happiness you'll sure see
I know how much you'll want to celebrate
The day after you finally graduate
I'll provide the alcohol but only before eight
And as long as friends be sure to designate
And if your prom doesn't go as planned
Put your little palm in my hand
I'll lock away my heart and give you the key
As long as you save the last dance for me
So put your little palm in the center of my hand
And one day your father you'll understand
You'll move out of my home
And have kids of your own
And all the things I will have done you'll understand
One day when you kids put their little palms in the center of your hand
