Her Latest Word

Her latest word.


“Dada” her latest word
Fills me with excitement
Plays all day in my head
Dada, her latest word

“Mama” the house is full of it
The word and the laughter
No one laughs like her,
“Mama” her latest word

“Mine” a sense of property
Ownership of all she sees
Heart melting as she steals my pen
“Mine” her latest word

“Ada” a new name for her big brother
Adam pretends not to care
But smiles none the less
“Ada” her latest word

“No” the tide has turned
Does she now understand her power?
The power of words and love
“No” her latest word.
