Feet and Hands

When he was born
his feet were so little
and I loved to play with them
rubbing them and tickling his toes

When he was born
his hands were so small
grabbing, but not always holding
perfect chubby little boy hands

Now he’s older
and his hands are bigger
almost as big as mine

And his feet are bigger
almost as big as mine

And he’s becoming taller
up to my chin
with a wicked humor
and a certain je ne sais quoi

But he’s not too old
not yet
for me to hold his hand
or to rub his feet
