|I smiled inside...
...when my dad
laughes at a joke I made or when he hugs me goodnight.
...when my baby sister used my hand to rub her eyelids
when she was sleepy.
...the time I caught a butterfly with my bare hands and
let it fly away in front of the next door neighbor kids
and they all said, "WWWWOOOOOWWWWW!!!"
...when I get a letter from my Grandma and how she always
signs it, Loads of love.
...when I watched my dad help my little brother learn to
ride the new two wheeler he got for his birthday.
...when my brother and I went out for ice-cream and we
ended up going Christmas lights watching while we were
...the time when my dad and I sang along with the beach
boys on the car radio when we got lost in an unfamiliar
neighborhood at night.
...when my friend (I call him my big brother) gives me
noogies and playfully teases, "Youre just too
happy all the time!"
...when my dad, my brother and I went camping and we
played Roger Miller songs all night.
...when my little brother first tried to mow the lawn and
he kept making figure 8s.
|When I saw
...the rough t-shirted tatooed taxi driver brake and wait
for the black squirrel to cross the street,
...the fat sweaty traffic cop stop traffic in order to
wave at the kid looking out with his face flat against
the back door window,
...the busy rushing waitress stop and wipe the dripping
milk off the high-chaired baby's chin,
...the vivacious perpetual-motion gal rush to the
wallphone, dial and out-loud with "just wanted to
tell you once more I love you",
I smiled inside.
