My Little Boogie

Published: March 2015

They call you Boogie because you danced before you walked
They call you Boogie because you sang before you talked
We were there for you when you took your first steps
We were there for you to wipe your tears when you wept
Every day we had to tell you take a bath
Every day your mom and I struggled with your math
We would kiss your boo-boos and give you band aids when you'd bleed
I love how you call me father whenever you're in need
I took you to school every single day
When you got upset I told you everything's OK
You would crawl in our bed every Saturday morning
You would take the remote and make us watch shows that were boring
Putting your cold feet on mine you would kick me out of bed
"Want to do something fun today" is something you always said
We spent years trying to fly that stinking kite
We read you bedtime stories at night.
You and I sang and battled with dance competitions
But lately you've been waking up and your daddy has been missing
It's not just hard on you, it's hard on all of us
But I know GOD has much more in store for us
Even though mom and I couldn't work things out
You're still my little Boogie, so we will figure this out
I am still here for you in every single way
Even though we will not see each other every single day
You and I will still do things that are fun
Like get that kite in the air as high as the sun
Just know that I love you, and remain the person you are
If you need me, just call me, I will never be far
We call you Boogie because you danced before you walked
We call you Boogie because you sang before you talked
I don't think you like the name, but I could be wrong
But promise me one thing, my little Boogie, please boogie on

That tells it like it is. There are so many divorces and separations, and the kids always suffer the most. Having their world changed in the blink of an eye affects them deeply. We have four grandchildren who were devastated by the divorce of their parents, never to gain solid ground or cope with childhood issues. Their minds were confused and their hearts broken. It doesn’t matter how peaceful or pleasant, the effects are tremendous. It’s a shame adults can’t put their selfish needs away and think of their children’s welfare.
